Ideas for
Learning Centers

 

 

 

 
Purpose 

The purpose of this page is to provide ideas for Learning Centers in the classroom.  Learning Centers provide a rich, hands on way for primary students to investigate, explore, and practice concepts associated with the curriculum.  Many of the ideas listed below are not my own, but are wonderful and exciting.
