To provoke an interest in the way in which letters are formed, children are engaged in experiences that allow them to explore building letters using a variety of mediums. Such provocations aim to inspire young learners to engage with letter formations in hands-on and meaningful ways.

Alphabet Photography teamed with Gymnastics Canada to create a human alphabet and support them on their journey to the London 2012 Olympic games. Photographer Jennifer Blakeley met with high profile Canadian gymnasts to shape their bodies into all 26 letters of the alphabet. This alphabet was used to provoke student interest.
