Made of soft silicone, these realistic couple people consist of 6 families with 6 family members - each made of a different transparent color (making each character completely different from the others) that can be linked with their hands. Characters include Grandpa & Grandma, Mom & Dad, and Girl & Boy. Molded with realistic features and proportion they can be used throughout the curriculum.
Linking People is an excellent resource for storytelling, language development, mathematical sorting, patterning, and their traits (larger/smaller, larger/smaller, older/younger). In science they can be used to help children understand life cycles, but also on a light box to see color mixing or the effect when reflected in a mirror. They are good for helping children develop fine motor skills and play in small worlds. Since they are made of silicone, they are strong and easy to clean after use in soapy water or even in the dishwasher without damage. The set comes with an information sheet with ideas in 8 languages for use in the curriculum.
Supports the following learning areas:
• Personal development - PSHE
• Physical development - motor skills
• Mathematics - counting and sorting
• Understanding the world - color
• Expressive art and design - imaginative play
