Small Steps to a Playful Classroom

Synopsis
What do play and scientific experimentation have in common? This is the second 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. This video covers how to scaffold playfulness in the classroom, and explores learning opportunities linked to basic Daily and Seasonal Changes. [6 minutes]
