learning and developing
CHS 298 Unit 4 BD
Think about a time you observed young children playing. Did you notice that some children were playing in groups while others played individually? Young children engage in different categories of play as they are learning and developing. In this discussion we will explore the different categories of play and the benefits of each type. Watch this video to learn about the four categories of play. As you watch, note the types of play that you have seen in your practicum classroom. For your initial response, in your own words provide a one-sentence description of each of the four categories of play. Describe examples of two of the types of play that you have observed in your practicum site. Comment on whether and how the physical space and social environment enhanced the play in your examples.
