This Push Pin Car file contains a push pin car template, an example of what the end product on construction paper may look like, and detailed instructions on how to create the push pin project. The materials needed for push pin projects are: the template provided, a push pin surface (Styrofoam, cardboard or a dense foam board), a push in, and construction paper if desired. In the directions, you will get the sequence for making push pin projects, ideas of how to choose the materials to use for you push pin surface, ways to make the project easier for those students that need this grading down for a just right challenge to their motor skills, ways to make the project more challenging (grading up) for those students who are building upon their strength and dexterity, and a list of benefits to motor skills from engaging students in push pin projects. Push pin projects tend to be very motivating for students as well as assisting in grasp development, two handed coordination and increasing attention to task.
I hope your students enjoy this project as much as mine have!
