PRE-K & KINDERGARTEN PUZZLE CLUB

Did you know that puzzle club provides on-the-job training? Recent studies have shown that young children who regularly play with puzzles develop better spatial skills. This is primarily due to the simultaneous use of both sides of the brain which occurs when connecting pieces of a puzzle together. The analytical left brain hemisphere logically sorts all of the separate pieces of the puzzle. The creative right brain hemisphere works intuitively and sees the “big picture.” By exercising both sides of the brain at the same time, young children develop the ability to mentally manipulate shapes. Having the ability to mentally transform shapes and envision the outcome is an important predictor of achievement in STEM related hobbies and ultimately careers later in life. Just look at the fun these students are having while training for future careers in medicine, engineering, architecture, and science!
