Not only is playing with blocks fun; block play helps us to learn and develop important skills we’ll need as we grow! Through blocks, we can learn everything from counting and matching to how to share and communicate with our friends! With OCM’s Block Party, we use blocks to build on important STEAM concepts. Develop hypotheses and test them on our Earthquake Testing Table. Explore technology and engineering as you build with Magnetos and Keva Planks. Express your artistic side as you design with Magna Tiles, and practice mathematics as you stack and sort Dado Cubes.Download Exhibit Details360° virtual tour of exhibit
