Learning by play

How play can support children’s development?

As it is known play has different benefits as physical, cognitive, social and emotional benefits. Children always want to play because through playing they make sense of the world. And it supports skills like collaboration, communication, and creativity. If you can offer time and space to children, they can developing themselves without any effort.

Only you need places like a book nook, science centre, dramatic play corner where the children’s imaginative worlds come to life.(1)

This play-based learning is can be used also in the high schools not only in the kindergartens or nursery schools. You can use this way of learning very different fields as science, technology, engineering and math.


An American teacher uses Rubik’s Cube to learn math for the children. Creating mosaics of historical figures, famous landmarks and animals out of cubes could be the way to promote critical thinking and algorithmic problem-solving. There are several connections one can make between the Rubik’s Cube and math. The Rubik’s Cube can be used to conceptualize surface area and volume, as well as exhibit a net of a familiar, three-dimensional solid.(2)
