This activity promotes development and learning by encouraging children to observe how they can manipulate objects to move. Children can explore the different types of movement and create hypotheses about why objects move differently.
- A variety of objects that move e.g. balls, yo-yos, wind-up toys, analog clock, toy cars, etc.
- Journal or paper
- Writing or drawing implements
Participants: This activity is intended for adult/child interaction.
- Ask your child to pick up each object and figure out what makes it move.
- In the journal, help your child create a chart and record what items move by spinning, rolling, sliding, or being pushed, pulled, twisted, etc.
