Whether children are walking a plank, climbing a tree or building

a tower, balance plays a key role. Understanding balance is a fundamental concept

and ways to explore its application should be experienced through play. Whether children are trying to balance the weight of sticks, stones, sand, water, fir cones, or mud, the process will bring about the right level of challenge and purpose as well as

developing some beautiful mathematical language.

​​​​Evergreen Outdoor Education 


Children are naturally curious and fascinated with 

number, order, pattern and size. Numbers are just 

numbers until we introduce some concrete meaning and purpose.  Our Giant Scales are a perfect resource to introduce context, relevance and value to enquiring minds in a challenging and playful way.
