Abstract:
Loose parts are natural or synthetic found, bought, or upcycled materials that children can move, manipulate, control, and change within their play. Daly and Beloglovsky show you how using loose parts can help you capture children's curiosity, give free reign to their imagination, and motivate learning. By developing creative environments, children will be encouraged to explore critical thinking in myriad ways.
