Motor Control With Magnet Paths

Print Friendly

A fun activity that we did at a Zaner Bloser workshop that I went to while at the OTAC spring fling, were these pages with paths on them. You place a metal piece on the path (I used a metal nut) with a magnet underneath. Then you move the magnet to make your piece follow the path.magnet roads 2

I thought that I would try this out with the pencil adventures, and it works perfectly. The ones I am using have been laminated
so they are a little stiff.

It takes some thought and motor planning to move your hand in the right direction when your hand is hidden under the paper.
