Track the movment of the cars as they cascade down the stepped slopes.
By letting one or more cars roll down from one slope to another, children learn to focus on moving objects and track the movement.
Cars are a great way to engage children. It's one of the first common moving objects that they come across. When they roll the cars on the slopes to see them make their way down, it fuels their curiosity and willingness to focus on moving objects. The speed at which the cars move is also very fascinating for children to hear and mimic.
Set includes a wooden cascade slope, 3 wooden cars all packed in a Skola Doodle Box.
Size of Product: 56 cm x 45 cm x 12 cm
As children begin to develop their visual tracking skills, they get ready to understand the cause and effect phenomenon (See How).
Following the movement of the car improves visual tracking among children, which is essential for improving their reading skills and abilities while playing any physical sport. This toy also leads to awareness of motion and movement as children watch and analyse the movements of the cars as they roll down the slopes. As they push the cars further or hold them back, they understand the impact of their actions on the speed, motion and time factors of the cars. As children place, move and stop the cars, they also enhance their fine motor skills.
Place the cars on top of the slope, and watch them whizz down. Children closely track the movment of the cars without moving their eyes off them. Children may also choose to place the car at any point on one of the slopes and track from there. They experiment with one or all cars, placing different cars at different points.
