What is Play?

Synopsis
What do play and scientific experimentation have in common? This is the first in a five-part video series in which the Ontario Science Centre helps teachers to start using play-based learning in the classroom. Through stimulating hands-on activities centred on the Earth and Space curriculum strand, the video explores how to harness students’ natural curiosity and assess learning using both indoor and outdoor programming. The film also explores the characteristics of play, and some common misconceptions about a play-based classroom. [5 minutes]
