The little book of maths outdoors: Supporting mathematical development through concrete hands-on activity and play
School of Education / Centre for Research in Early Childhood
The Little Maths Books are packed with advice and ideas for everybody working with children in early years settings and aiming to meet the goals of the EYLF. All activities are carefully planned to meet the objectives for each stage of development, particularly between two and five years old. The Little Book of Maths Outdoors shows you how to take popular maths activities, using low cost resources, and make them work outside. Most young children love being outdoors and many will be encouraged to try new things and learn more effectively when they are in their preferred environment. The wide range of different activities in this book supports children’s mathematical development through concrete, active, hands-on activity and play.
