    composition provocation

    Transient art with metal, silver & grey loose parts - from Rachel (",)

    Provocation... from A classroom full of curiosity and wonder

    nature collage art frame. This could be done on an embroidery hoop ($1 store?). Great idea for fall, when there are lots of dried materials.

    Exploring symmetry with loose parts

    Lovely use of frames & natural materials (",)

    Various sizes of tubes & balls...loose parts for hours of play!

    Provocations (Reggio)

    Andy Goldsworthy inspired. Children trace each others outline on the pavement with chalk and cover themselves up with nature. Even better would be to trace the image in dirt with a stick.

    I have lots of both already! Just need tongs... Egg cartons and corks for loose parts play.

    Framing up tabletop play: Adding simple matte board frames as a work/design space created new interest in existing materials!

    Provocations (Reggio)

    Beautiful display of tools and materials for sand table. {source unknown}

    I love this provocation. Pictures of robots with construction materials for creating your own.

    This display of the wood and stones is so inviting and would definitely grad children's attention when they are looking for what they would like to play with. I think it's incredibly important to keep loose materials presented in an inviting, intriguing way in order to attract children to explore the materials, and this is a great example of that.
