An Outdoor Makerspace: Learning through Play!

From perspective taking to learning in a group, students learn and develop best through play! Recess is an opportunity for our students to practice and generalize skills of communication, collaboration, and creativity in a genuine, yet unstructured setting. However, the playground is not always accessible or equitable for students as they may not be interested in activities such as football or soccer. I propose that we encourage opportunities for play and learning using the Everblocks from Stemfinity as a step towards building an outdoor makerspace!
