Did you know that students who are running and jumping are learning the laws of physics? That learning about surface tension involves blowing bubbles? That children who are picking up cotton balls with tongs are developing their pincer grips? These are just a few examples of how children learn through play. Textbook author Lisa Murphy challenges us to ensure our professional practice focuses on what the research proves is the foundation of learning: play. In this inspiring course, you will learn ways to add the “Magnificent Seven” to your lessons, gather evidence that champions learning through play, and will return laughter, joy, and play to your classroom! A textbook will be sent to you following registration!
