Blocks-A Different Perspective
As educators we are all aware of the benefits of block play. It is rewarding to watch children as they move through the various stages; carrying, stacking, bridging, enclosures and eventually structures.

The structures you see above are a result of what happens when a teacher invites children to look at alternate methods.
