What is the Froebel method of teaching?

The Fröbel method of teaching, pioneered by Friedrich Fröbel (1782 - 1852), centers on the belief that play is a fundamental aspect of a child's life. Fröbel established kindergartens in 1840, emphasizing education, upbringing, and care as foundational principles. He believed that children express themselves and discover many things through play, which prepares them for the adult world through games, crafts, and music. With this goal in mind, he developed a system of so-called "play gifts." By engaging with these play gifts, children are introduced to the world and its rules. These gifts consisted of geometric elements made of wood, paper, and other materials, aiding children in developing structures categorized into three basic forms: nature, mathematics, and art. For example, the first Fröbel gift is a soft ball, while the second consists of three solid wooden objects: a sphere, a cube, and a cylinder. In total, there are ten play gifts. Additionally, Fröbel introduced Froebelian occupations, now employed in kindergartens worldwide, including activities like paper folding, weaving, sewing, paper cutting, paper pricking, painting, drawing, and clay modeling. This approach has greatly influenced modern art and architecture, with renowned artists and architects such as Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, Le Corbusier, and others engaging with Fröbel's geometric forms during their childhood education.
