From Our Blog: STEM Learning at Home Activity for Kids: Building Bridges

|Building Bridges Learning Activity for Kids||

Children at Bright Horizons preschools learn that STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) is all around us - at school and at home.

Watch as Sarah explains how to conduct the “Building Bridges” learning activity for children. This STEM activity, which only takes 10 minutes to complete and is best suited for toddler or preschool-aged children, will teach your child about engineering, math and the force of gravity. You only need two items to complete this activity: a book about bridges or one that incorporates bridges (Sarah suggests The Three Billy Goats Gruff) and a set of blocks with varying shapes.
