Instructional Ideas
  • Cut slits into the top of the shoe box, and keep the lid on for pupils to "feed" the card to boost hand-eye coordination

Classroom Considerations
  • Preparation includes gathering and assembling materials
  • Laminate cards after copying to permit reuse with minor wear and tear
