Celebration of Learning: Balls
Why Investigate Balls?
Children love balls! They play with them in so many different ways. They throw them, catch them, kick them and roll them with seemingly endless delight. The universal and enduring appeal of balls is evident in the traditional games children play with them and in the ways they invent their own ball games.
This study utilizes children's interest in balls to help them explore social studies and science concepts related to the features and nature of balls, and to use literacy, math, technology, and art skills as they investigate!
