Visual Tracking and Bilateral Coordination Activity

Here is a fun, super cheap activity to encourage visual tracking and bilateral coordination. All you need is a pool noodle, a marble and some tape.

Step 1: Cut the pool noodle in half lengthwise with a serrated knife (adults please).

Step 2: Shape one half of the pool noodle into a circle and tape it closed.

Step 3: Try to make the marble go around the circle track without it falling out. See how many times you can make the marble go around the track. Our record was 32 times!

Bonus: nice science lesson on centripetal force. You have to keep up the speed of the marble going around the track or it will fall out.
