Creating Classroom Enivronments. The Tri-Wall Experiment.
Anderson, Mary Ann
This booklet describes some initial work on environments at the early childhood level; special emphasis is given to the experiences of first-grade children with the medium of tri-wall (triple thick cardboard). Experiments at Nueva over the past two years (1971-1973) indicate children at this developmental level seem to gain great satisfaction when they construct their own environments and experience taking part in problem-solving. Tri-wall allows for learning and doing in different ways; for experimentation, manipulation, and other first hand experiences that are essential to early learning. (Author/MLF)
