Imagination Playground

The materials for the imagination playground (giant blue foam blocks) support best practice in early childhood education as they allow for open-ended thinking and problem solving, encourage inquiry, and develop social and collaborative skills necessary for 21st century learners. STEAM education (Science, technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) elements are integral to meeting the needs of the future of our country. These materials have been designed to incorporate all the STEAM elements and will appeal to the curious nature of early childhood students. May be used inside or outside. http://www.imaginationplayground.com/product/big-blocks.html
