How I Use It
This is great for early finishers or small groups in Pre-K to possibly 2nd grade classrooms. One of the issues is that the students get so excited when they touch the magic wand making their colored creation literally come to life. Whatever the object is, it becomes a 3D object that can be manipulated on the scene. There is also a jukebox that allows them to create music, so headphones are a must. They can also record themselves, so if you want this to be a quiet activity, you will need to let them know that singing isn't ok during that time.
My Take
I don't think this is a great "teaching tool" per say. You can teach the concept of symmetry in one of the activities. It can be used to help students develop fine motor skills and being able to isolate their pointer finger. You could set up coloring keys for the different coloring activities so that it does become more of a learning activity, like a color by number type of thing where they would be learning color words. Otherwise this is a tool that could be used to keep kids busy while you are working with others.
