This activity consists of a beautifully made structure that suspends bells. This exercise is made of solid maple wood and birch wood dowels, and finished with water-based, non-toxic, wood finish. The item uses 2mm elastic cord, and 100% Wool Felt that is considered an ecological textile. This product gives a child the opportunity to listen to the bells ring and observe the mesmerizing motion of sliding bells. Children are free to flip the project upside-down, shake it while doing so, or to bring one bell up by hand and let it slide down.
Teacher approved the Montessaurus Sliding Assorted Bells Activity aims to develop observational skills, the ability to properly maneuver the object so that it performs the way it is intended, concentration and independence, and an appreciation for the beauty of the material. This product works indirectly by helping the child to acquire gross and fine motor skills, and to give the child visual and tactile awareness of movement. The control of error appears in the disruption of the movement.Bell Sizes are 0.3 in (0.9 cm), 0.47 in (1.2 cm), 0.6 in (1.5 cm). The structure size is 5.5in x 5.5in x 11in (14cm x 14cm x 28cm)
