Durable vinyl tarp challenges students to work together and problem solve as they work their way through the maze.
Emphasis on Problem Solving
While solving the maze, students learn about the importance of teamwork, problem solving, patience, communication, and cooperation. They must work together to move a single ball or several balls around the holes in the tarp. In the process, students discover that patience is important because rushing makes the ball more likely to fall off the edge, down a hole, or stick to the hook-and-loop fastener spots.
Students hold the tarp and work together to lift it up or down to move the balls along the printed maze design. They need to effectively communicate and synchronize their movements to be successful. A rope cord sewn into the edges provides a slight lip, helping students keep balls on the tarp and giving them a good grip.
