Moti-Lab is a pop up laboratory that is amazing for experiential and sensory learning right across EYFS. The magnetic gutters, wheels and switches can be used with water, balls or anything else that flows for a whole host of learning.
Being an open-ended resource, there are no right and wrong ways to approach the tasks so they can only be done by having a go and experimenting. As it is so easy to manipulate and intuitive to use children can easily perform tasks by testing, assessing, form new strategies and test them immediately. Learning is fostered through trial and error allowing for risk free learning.
There is also a vast range of specific activities, games and experiments that can be performed to augment your teaching of the EYFS Maths and Science curriculum. The very basics of scientific thinking and problem solving are easily engendered using the equipment through unstructured learning through play, semi structured child led tasks or more formal teacher led activities. This could be anything from testing different liquids down a run, making muddy mixtures, testing materials and shapes. The possibilities are endless and you will also be provided with curriculum focused activity guides and ideas to help teach more specific tasks and skills.
Practical in nature Moti-Lab fosters all the Characteristics of effective learning in EYFS.
