MoMA Art Lab: Places and Spaces

The MoMA Art Lab is a wonderful place for a New York City afternoon with children. In the latest MoMA Art Lab, children discover landscapes, cityscapes, real places and more.  According to recent research (1), leaning spatial terms improves children’s spatial skills.   Talking with children about places and spaces is a great way to foster language and spatial skills.
