Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Closure is the ability to recognize any given visual stimulus from an incomplete presentation (part of the stimulus is missing). The ability to identify what we are seeing without having to analyze every detail enables us to process information in our environment quickly.
In the “Sportsman Halves” worksheets, the student must mentally fill in the missing half, in order to identify the corresponding image that will complete each sportsman.
Visual Motor Integration
Visual Motor Integration relates to the coordination of visual perceptual skills with body movement (the use of visual information to guide a motor task). For fine motor tasks, the eyes inform the arm and hand muscles where to go like "follow the leader”, so that motor output matches visual input.
In the “Sportsman Halves” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to draw a line connecting the “halves” in a fluid and controlled manner.
Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration.
To complete the “Sportsman Halves” worksheets successfully, the student must attend to one “half” at a time within the busy field of the surrounding “halves”.
