- keep visual displays at children's eye level
- provide a variety of materials and resources (familiar and novel, simple and complex) for children to explore, manipulate, and use, both in learning activities and in imaginative play
|"Children's nature collections breathe life into displays."|
-Mary Anne Rody
|Tactile experiences vary from child to child, nevertheless,|
the richness and variety of materials is an indispensable
characteristic when planning the environment for young
children (Ceppi & Zini, 1998, p. 77).
|"Have nothing in your classroom that you do not know |
to be useful or believe to be beautiful"
(Diller, 2008, p. 17, adapted from William Morris).
