Train Track

10 min1 participant

Learn left to right reading direction, notions of alignment to complete the track made of bricks and drive the train.

Let's play!

  1. Add bricks to finish the long train track at the top of the base plate.

  2. Pretend your finger is a train moving along the track.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate 

  • 16 bricks

  • 1 bowl

Place one brick on the base plate: reading position, at the top left corner, to begin the train track.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “Where is the train going?”.

  • Affix the base plate to the wall in a vertical plane to change perspective and facilitate understanding spatial notion.

Possible variations

  • Change the starting number of bricks.

  • Add more tracks.
