One of the centers offered to the students during free-choice exploration workshop is building with blocks. Block play is a great way to build skills that we typically label as “academic”. Children expand their understanding and application of multiple math, science and social skills.
To challenge students while keeping the center child-initiated, we can offer provocations and challenges. This resource contains pictures of ships to inspire children to build and learn about a variety of different ships.
What is included:
- 12 pictures of a variety of different ships to post in block center as a provocation
- 3 challenges to pose to children one per week- two of the challenges are based on favorite picture books
- Letter to families
- Ideas for open-ended questions to pose to encourage critical thinking
- Ideas for vocabulary words to use in conversation to expand the students working vocabulary
