“Simply dressing up like a firefighter or building an exquisite Lego edifice may not be enough. If you can combine creative play with rich language, formal conversations and math concepts, that’s more likely to yield the cognitive gains we observed.”
— Bruce Fuller, lead author of a educational study recently conducted by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.
