Snow Play: Learning at its Finest

SnowPlay6St. Mary’s teachers recognize the importance of play in a child’s development. Students are encouraged to bring snow pants and cold weather gear so they can climb and play on the snow drifts in the school yard. While they play, they learn. Snow play requires creativity, scientific observation and negotiation skills. Think of the creativity fostered as children build snow creatures. They learn the complexities of problem solving as they try to mold snow into different shapes. Adventurous types learn about construction and the properties of physics as they build walls for snow forts. Snow play is play at its finest for our students-experimenting, discovering, problem solving, negotiating, and creating all wrapped up with the emotion of joy in their St. Mary’s winter wonderland.
