Habitat and Life cycle Sensory Box. (Total 30 Pieces). Sensory box is a wonderful tactile sensory play activity for kids all ages. This sensory box is large enough to let your child explore without moving the filler out of the container. It provides children with unique or novel experience every time they explore it.
These sensory boxes teach children vocabulary of all the objects in it, life cycle , habitat , and give them ample opportunities to use their imagination and create their own stories using the information learned.
Their stories can later be depicted in form of pictures that they draw, dictation to an adult, or a written story by the child itself. This activity is extremely beneficial to all ages:
Toddlers(15 Months - 3 Year old): Toddlers can work on their fine motor skills and hand to eye coordination by using the natural pouring scoops to pour from one container to another without throwing the grains and moss outside the box. They will also be exposed to a box full of vocabulary.
Preschoolers(3-5 Year old): Preschoolers will learn balance (by carrying the box to their table/work space without dropping it, hand to eye coordination with the pouring activities, vocabulary and facts about the habitat and life cycle. This activity can be extended into other areas such as in math by counting objects in the box ( number of flowers, number of leaves, number of worms, or bugs, or logs, etc). In language it can be used as for sound games, vocabulary, and story telling.
Ages 4 and above: Beginning readers can use movable/magnetic alphabets to label different things they have discovered in the sensory box, Intermediate readers can use either the movable/magnetic alphabets to write few lines about their discoveries, fluent readers can write a follow up paragraph about their discoveries and facts.
Use a magnifying glass and help the children discover what is hidden in the layers farm floor.
