Frank Lloyd Wright at the Drawing Table
Through child-play, children manipulate Froebel's Kindergarten Gifts and Occupations to create Nature, Knowledge and Beauty Forms. The Nature Forms depict things that can be seen in the natural world, such as, buildings, tables, sofas, stars, boats, dogs and trees. Knowledge Forms represent mathematical and logical ideas, such as, number, proportion, equivalence and order. Beauty Forms are arranged on grids exhibiting symmetry, balance and pattern, and viewed as works of art.
Nature Form - Sofa / Table Knowledge Form - "Lauren"
Children create unlimited numbers and kinds of Nature, Knowledge and Beauty Forms. Anything a child can imagine, the child may create using such things as blocks, tiles, sticks, rings, threads, needles, pencils, paper strips, peas and wires and clay of the Gifts and Occupations. The possibilities for learning are far-reaching and unique to each child; all initiated and stimulated by a one-of-a-kind set of "play things".
