When teachers introduce games that emphasize hands-on and interactive learning, children develop STEM concepts and habits of mind.  Games that interest children and stimulate their thinking support logical thinking, number sense, oral language, reading, writing.  They also provide opportunities to reason about strategies, learn to take turns, take another person’s perspective, and negotiate.
