The Library Mobile Mag Wall is a unique platform for expanding creative play in your library. We’ve made it portable so you can create an interactive play space wherever you wish! Examine slope, cause & effect, momentum and gravity through hands on experimentation! Very few products on the market offer a vertical play space that challenges children to deal with gravity in this way. Children arrange the rings and ramps as they wish to create vertical drop. Depending on the material of choice: balls, cars, or even sand, your kids will learn how much slope is needed to move the material down the ramp, through a tunnel or over a bridge. Perfect for supporting STEAM discoveries with toddlers through school-age children!
The Mobile Magnet wall can be used on both sides, making it a great value for your space!
Included with the Library Mobile Mag Wall is a magnetic set of words and symbols designed specifically to enhance exploration. Vocabulary words of varying difficulty, along with arrows and other symbols, can be placed on the wall during play to deepen interest and connection. Adults can help emerging readers by using the words to describe the active play.
Our “Play” Podium is included with the magnet wall and features places for books, brochures, and a handy white board. In addition, this "Play" Podium features a magnetic side for easy and handy storage of the magnet pieces. Write vocabulary words or use the magnets on the white board for child and parent interaction. Or pose a few questions about gravity, speed, momentum or force. Plenty of room for fiction and nonfiction books at children’s eye level to spark interest!
