Link: Why Play is Important?

“When researchers studied preteen children’s attitudes about play, they discovered that some children called almost everything they did “play” while others called almost everything they did “work.” Reconnecting with the children at the end of adolescence, the children who thought of everything as play were more successful and happier in school and were more content socially than the people who saw everything as “work.”

I really, really, want to see a visual, animation really breaking this down in detail! (I’m seeing the visual importance of using art in education).
