Investigative and Constructive Play
Test out a ball run or balance scale, build with enormous foam blocks or build a rock wall at the construction site. STEM activities are rotated to keep children learning and discovering. Open ended materials will spark creativity and allow kids to follow the scientific method without even knowing it. For example they'll come up with an idea (hypothesis) that they will test by building it. They will draw conclusions about the outcome either continuing to develop their initial idea, or by changing the design. A light table, Connectix tiles, a digital microscope, balancing games - there's something to interest anyone!
