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.
