Encouraging kids to be original thinkers - (2011-17) - 6 years of exploration! Thanks for being part of the ride! :) Check out my blog: E is for Explore! - for 783 free lessons, activities, games and toys that encourage inquiry, design thinking, problem-solving skills, imaginative / creative thinking, nature, drama, learning with movement, music, arts integration and PLAY! - Creative Genius Kids!
Explore began in 2011 as a blog that provided art and design activities that integrate different content areas for elementary and home school teachers. Explore then joined We Are Teachers (2013 - 2017) as an activity blogger, providing teachers with unique S.T.E.A.M. ideas to use in the classroom. Lessons on TpT focus on real world, meaningful learning that gets kids to interact, create and most importantly EXPLORE! (Photo of kids in Toulouse, France creating Geo Art!
