Learning Goal: Creativity, Fine Motor Skills, Sensory Play

    • Provide students with playdough and playdough tools (scissors, plastic cutting knives) and encourage them to create.
    • The educator can extend learning by connecting playdough building with topics/ areas of interest from the classroom.
