Strong Museum of Play

Even if you are not able to visit the museum, this website showcases some amazing ideas for games and interactive activities for kids. You can explore:
  • children's literature
  • a kid-sized supermarket
  • the Sesame Street neighborhood, and more.
Go to Just for Kids to answer quiz questions, manipulate tangrams, draw a family portrait, or make a paper bag puppet. The site also explains why play is essential to child development. Quote from the site: Play is fun! But play is also a whole lot more. Humans have played since earliest times, and philosophers and scholars have thought about it for centuries. More than 2,000 years ago, Plato suggested, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”

"love My eCoach because it helps me so much in building units of study for my class. Now more than ever, this wonderful community will be my constant helper because I am a technology teacher for two elementary schools. I use the Universal builder a lot, and plan to use the survey builder very soon as well. I became a member when I was in my teaching credential program, and I loved it so much that I made a membership for my sister in Brazil (she loves it too).

Through the years, My eCoach has been here and it is strong and better than ever by providing an incredible support to teachers all over the world! Every time I receive a newsletter from Barbara my heart sings because I know she cares about all the teachers who rely on her website and community to excel in their teaching career. I say it because I rely on her and this site!

Thank you My eCoach for being here for me!"
