Workshops coming up:
Get excited about mathematics again –
together with children out in nature!
26th January & 29th March, at 10-11 am in Nature Center Naava at Pyhätunturi, Lapland
Which one is more: 3 mandarins or 1 orange? How many pine cone cows are left when one runs away?
Together we build solid foundations through play. At workstations filled with engaging activities, movement, stories and rhymes we learn how mathematics can be a fun game: riddles, puzzles, problem solving, movement in nature and exciting adventures in the world of colours and forms.
You can join with 2-5 year old children or without – teachers are also warmly welcome!
