STEM Learning at Home Activity for Kids: Building Bridges

STEM Learning at Home Activity for Kids: Building Bridges

Children at Bright Horizons preschools learn that STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) is all around us – at school and at home.

Watch as Sarah, a Bright Horizons Center Director, explains how to conduct the “Building Bridges” learning activity for children. This STEM activity, which only takes 10 minutes to complete and is best suited for toddler or preschool-aged children, will teach your child about engineering, math and the force of gravity. You only need two items to complete this activity: a book about bridges or one that incorporates bridges (Sarah suggests The Three Billy Goats Gruff) and a set of blocks with varying shapes. Watch now:

Bright Horizons centers incorporate STEM into the daily curriculum through fun and engaging learning activities like the one above. Learn more about the Bright Horizons curriculum and how our teachers make learning exciting for students in our classrooms.
