Block Tricks: Defying Gravity

How do you convince parents that the blocks in your classroom are a valuable learning tool? Can you prove to doubtful superiors that a child playing in the block area is immersed in physical science, engineering, and mathematics?

Besides simply observing children at play, engaging adults in block building is a persuasive way to demonstrate the learning potential in unit blocks. They will soon discover that what is going on in the block area is a whole lot more than “just play”. (They probably also will discover that exploring physics is a lot of fun.)

For example, have you ever made a block roll up an incline? Is it possible? Watch this captivating experiment and then try it yourself.
