Links to Theorists:
- This learning experience can be linked to Piaget’s theories. He believes that children need to be able to see, touch, taste, smell, move and hear the things they are learning about. This is called ‘concrete learning’.
Learning Through Play
- Building and construction also sparks patience, persistence, and focus
- Building and construction promotes fine motor manipulation and strength.
- It also encourages imagination and communication skills as children problem solve and create their own play through what they have built.
