Ready to play “Apple trees”?

Prepare and play!
Drawing of the activity: letter G bricks spread all over a base plate

Let’s discover an activity from the category “Orientation”.

Your students will develop hand and finger strength and recognize spatial relationships. Create an apple orchard on the base plate.

You need to prepare a base plate, ten letter bricks “G” (or “C”) and a bowl. Place the ten bricks in the bowl.

Let’s play!

  1. Pick an apple tree brick from the bowl.

  2. Look for the studs on the brick: they are the apples! The smooth part of the brick is the trunk.

  3. Attach the apple tree to the base plate. Make sure your tree is not upside down!

  4. Plant as many trees as you can to make an orchard!
