Children learn well when they are mentally active, engaged, social, and can make meaningful connections to their lives, which are all characteristics of play. Neuroscientists have found that play activates the brain in meaningful ways that rote memorization, testing, worksheets, and traditional classroom techniques do not. They reenact experiences to solidify understanding.
