Open-ended materials stimulate thoughtfulness, creativity, investigation, complex thinking and communication. Children must communicate and make agreements about the identity, purpose and function of this type of material for each encounter.
When the materials do not present themselves with instructions or a pre-designed use - they challenge the children to create and think in new ways.
