Uncover Problem Solving Through Outdoor Play
Children love to play outside in the natural environment. By utilizing the natural inclinations of young children to explore and by encouraging problem-solving skills, educators can move students’ thinking forward. It’s even easier than you might think to invite your youngest learners to join you as inventors and problem-solvers and jump into the world of computational thinking while playing outside and interacting with the world around them!
