Recently I was directed to this wonderful infographic ~
“Fun — it’s not just for, well, fun. Playing games can help boost a person’s development throughout their childhood.
Through playing games children learn a number of important skills, like turn-taking, empathy, problem solving, and being a good sport whether they win or lose. Scientific evidence supports a theory that play stimulates the cerebral cortex which is vital to learning and memory. “
Pop over to Early Childhood Education Degrees to view the infographic “The Play’s The Thing: How Fun Can Make Your Child A Better Student“.
