Construction involves children building and making things no one has seen before. Children are offered a variety of materials and begin to sort, arrange and construct using their ideas and imagination. Through construction it provides children an opportunity to invent and discover new possibilities.
The Construction Area template is for a child's portfolio and consists of a typical interest area that you may have set-up in your service setting. It enables you to add 3 images of the child playing in the specific area as well as a description to accommodate the photos. It also has the benefits the child gains through playing within the interest area as well as a tick box to Link to The Curriculum (Outcomes, Principles and Practices). The template also features a colour theme and clip art images for that particular interest area.
This template is great to add to a Portfolio to help Parents understand that playing with construction benefits a child. It includes:
- 3 images boxes
- Description box
- Check boxes for Outcomes, Principles and Practices
