This area of play-based learning is extremely important for children in relation to therapeutic, psychological, cognitive, creative, language, and explorative. Sensory experiences provide a richness of perception, the senses, are soothing, exploratory and can be part of other curriculum areas and skill development
Invitations to Explore with Rocks | Reggio Inspired Provocations
Children can go outdoors and collect rocks. They can then practice balancing techniques with the rocks and figure out ways to make their rock structures more solid. Rocks can also be sorted by size, shape, texture and/or colour. Children can work in small teams to collect and build their structures or work independently to sort and group their materials.
this kindergarten life: balance, pattern, rhythm and awe
