Play and Learning Themes

As we planned the Rocks for Play and Learning program and blog, we identified seven major themes related to how young children engage with rocks. Each theme in the following list is linked to a page that describes and illustrates that theme:

Of course in real life the themes all blend together. But Rocks for Play and Learning tries to look a bit more closely at the individual themes.

If you are going to implement parts of Rocks for Play and Learning at your home or center, you will also want to check our our Resources for Parents and Educators pages linked here.
