When learning about community there is no better way then having child make a map of their own community. Often times we tend to get children to draw a picture on paper. However Guidcraft has an alternative that is sure to get children excited about their community in a whole new way! Guildcraft 42 piece Roadway System and the 7″ Block Play Traffic Signs.
The roadway system is a great way for kids to map their neighborhood or make a new neighborhood of their own. These tracks lock together like puzzle pieces and stay together so children can race cars or place houses in their proper place. The pieces are large and easy for small fingers to grasp. The durable hardwood veneer make it strong so children can “share” like all good young students (who are learning to share) can do. It will take the abuse your students will dish out.
Also to go along with your new community are optional 7” traffic signs. These signs have a solid base and are made of wood so they will not fall down easily. They are brightly colored and come in a variety of signs that are common for students to see.
With the Roadway and Sign’s together you can make any child’s community to their liking. This will give you ample opportunity to teach students about road safety, crosswalks and what each sign means, to help them in their own community.
Use the Roadway to have children learn about teamwork as they build a community together all the while playing and having fun.
The countless configurations make this tool an instant hit in your home or classroom. Children can learn about everything from team work to individual safety. Problem solving skills will be enhanced as they try and make new tracks and make community of their dreams.
This will surly be a hit in your classroom OR on under your Christmas Tree this year!
