Engaging Students with Hands-on Learning

The activities that are here can help students a lot, because now you’re exposed to more, you can move, interact, learn with peers. You actually have something tangible to touch, which can spark your learning and your interest. And that’s the main thing we want to do as educators; that’s what school is for.

Heal Play Learn is a partnership with Educate Texas that delivers hands-on learning opportunities to students in three school districts. Through activities such as dance and music classes, science experiments, cooking demonstrations and more, the program encourages students’ social and emotional wellness, physical activity, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking skills.
