Visual Discrimination plays a critical role in a child's ability to learn to recognize letters, numbers and other symbols. It is one of the important building blocks in learning to read.
If a child can not discriminate the letter "b" from the letter "h", he may read "bit" instead of "hit". Later on, this may be seen as a "learning disability" when it is really just underdeveloped visual discrimination skills.
In this game, each child is given the same set of blocks.
The "teacher" builds a structure with the blocks. The rest of the children replicate the structure.
We get a lot of practice because each child gets a chance to be the teacher.
