Sand & Water

 

Sensory, tactile, elemental, a place to create a natural world – children love sand and water areas. 

Plan and equip your sand and water learning area with a solidly constructed versatile table and a variety of well-made tools, but don’t stop there.  Introduce other natural elements:

  • Leaves

  • Potting Soil

  • Twigs,

  • Pebbles

  • Feathers

Experiment mixing natural elements with human made such as paper, wood, metal and tools.    

 

Heuristic Play Loose Parts

Introduce a variety of colours, textures, shapes and materials.  Bury, immerse, sink to provoke.  Or just put it in front of the children to see how they play and learn.

Connecting with STEM

 

“Because of its sensory nature, sand play is an excellent medium for exploration and discovery and provides opportunities to integrate STEM education into preschool classrooms.”

Dr. F. Joyce Gerber communityplaythings.com - Exploring Sand Play. (2017). Retrieved April 1, 2017, from http://www.communityplaythings.com/resources/articles/2014/exploring-sand-play
