Develop tactile exploration technique and location of bricks, to recreate an identical flat sculpture
Find the sculpture created on one of the base plates
Take your time to explore it
Make a twin sculpture on the other base plate.
How to prepare
8 equal sign bricks (“=”)
2 base plates
Create a flat 4-brick sculpture on one base plate. Place the other 4 bricks in a bowl.
Allow adequate time for trial and error method to create proper reproduction on the base plate.
Suggest removal and relocation of sculpture, if it doesn’t fit on the base plate.
Change the number of bricks, or sculptures.
Create 3D sculptures.
Peer play: one player creates, the other, reproduces the sculpture.
Children will develop these holistic skills
- Tell, express, analyse: Explain process of doing, playing
- Know the purpose of the activity
- Reproduce, assemble, organize, link graphic patterns and then create new ones
- Recognize and discriminate SHAPES by touch
- Plan and carry out routine or non-routine activities requiring multiple steps
