Forts and Houses Abound
Learn how people everywhere are more alike than different by making connections between your own home and how people live around the world.
In The Building Square, you create your very own Construction Zone and design the interior of a house. Tools for building are plentiful, challenging children's fine motor and gross motor skills, as well as spatial abilities.
Throughout Imagine a House, children engage in cooperative play and explore properties of building, such as shape, size, weight, and quantity. Children will gain a sense of how one's self-identity is shaped through the culture — music, food, games — and traditions of where they live.
