Students select a theme (ex: ocean, outer space, sports, dogs, holidays, insects, letters, flowers, chocolate) and create an enrichment box for preschool children by gathering ten different stimulating objects. They must include items that encourage a child’s growth in these areas of development: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, art, music, and dramatic play. Students then implement the box with the preschoolers that attend the Play and Discover Preschool (High School Child Development Laboratory). At the conclusion of the project, the students evaluate the box according to the interaction with the preschoolers.
