So much of what we adults no longer pay attention to in the background of everyday life, is still new and exciting to kids. Heavy equipment, construction sites and trucks are one example of this. For young children the sizes, noise and power of big trucks signifies their importance and grabs their interest. As they do with dinosaurs, kids soak in the the names for different types of construction equipment, farm equipment, truck parts, and the names of their favorite monster trucks. Truck play taps into many areas learning: construction, imaginary role play, science, physics, vocabulary and more.
