Friday, April 17, 2015: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
212 (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Bonnie B. Ripstein
Elizabeth Orton


Nature is unique in that nothing is perfectly shaped or colored, thus providing children with a platform for being creative in thought, rich in language, and excited about learning. This presentation will focus on how the use of natural materials as manipulatives provides richer mathematical experiences and enhances critical thinking skills.
