I’m Thinking Endless Cognitive Possibilities


I noticed this child peering into this bucket in the area of our classroom housing natural items. I’m thinking endless cognitive possibilities:

  • Experiencing textures
  • Cooking
  • Creating recipes
  • Strengthening hand muscles
  • Shapes
  • Sorting
  • Grasping
  • Grip
  • Vertical
  • Horizontal
  • Negative space
  • Natural items as props for play

The above list – a dozen items – all learning activities provided to us by nature using only a bucket and gleaned items from the Hill, Backyard play and our own collection of natural items.
