Understanding the concept of construction is important for preschoolers as it helps them develop their problem-solving skills, spatial awareness, and creativity. It also encourages them to explore and experiment with different materials and tools.

To create a preschool learning environment that teaches construction, educators can provide a variety of building materials such as blocks, Legos, and cardboard boxes. They can also set up a construction area with tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, and saws (with adult supervision). Additionally, educators can incorporate books and videos about construction to further enhance the learning experience.
