The Marble Maze Ramps are specially designed to make a sensory set of tones as they descend down the slope!
Children design different tracks or roads for the marbles to travel, creating a new configuration each time. Paths can be as simple or as complex as desired.
The Marble Maze Ramps are a wonderful early childhood or primary classroom learning resource that supports a play based approach to STEM learning.
Each vertical plank of birch plywood is at a slightly different height, but with the same slope, as the others. Change the order and angle of the planks to create an endless variety of marble pathways. The planks can be used in either direction, as incline or decline, to offer even more ways to play.
Because of the small scale of the materials, this investigation requires patience and promotes motor skill development.
For use on a flat table top, wood is left in its natural state, no finish/lacquer.
