, ,

The “Wonder of Learning Exhibition” has just opened on the North Campus of the University of Michigan.

Hours and further information here!

Centered around the early education approach developed in the community of Reggio Emilia, Italy. The Exhibit offers numerous events: lectures, creative workshops, and professional development opportunities for teachers (the NAREA conference).

 

 

The Reggio Emiliano is an educational approach embraced and encouraged by The Scrap Box and numerous local schools as placing a child into a material rich environment to obtain the greatest potential for creative output and growth!

following are links to free Public and Community Events associated with the Exhibition for Families and Children of All Ages

  • June 16, 2017 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

    Ann Arbor Summer Festival Kid Zone

    Let your creativity loose to combine and manipulate many materials, natural and synthetic. Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials. Join staff from the UM’s Children’s Centers in this preview of their “Wonder of Learning Exhibit” for families and early childhood educators on campus.

  • June 17, 2017 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

    Allen Creek Preschool: Outdoor adventure – Water Play

    Come join us at Allen Creek Preschool in our Franklin Nature Area for a morning of open exploration of water play. The water atelier features natural materials – lengths of split bamboo, stumps, and rocks – for designing and building waterways. There are areas for exploring floating, sinking, filling, pouring, and flowing water. Water is wondrous for everyone – toddlers, preschoolers, older sibs and on and on!

    Children may get their clothes wet while exploring with water; a change of clothes is a good idea.
