Learn Control . . . An Exciting Primary Activity

 

An excellent precursor to Controllable Vehicles and Fairgrounds suggested by the QCDA.

 

This is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn how to use IT control devices and apply them to simple models. The activity uses Learn-Go control boxes and K’Nex plastic construction sets to construct and control projects. Topics covered are traffic lights, fairgrounds, vehicles and cranes.
