The nature area often provokes play. The challenge last week was cooperation and respect for the materials. The children were encouraged to stay focused on play scenarios that they created using natural items and some man-made items in the nature area. The children were encouraged to place items in exact places representing the stories happening. We asked them to stay away from commingling items. With numerous items and large spaces to play, this can be daunting for children. What do you think by looking at the photos. Did they rise to the challenge?
