Back to School Visual Discrimination Activity
Help preschool-aged children build visual discrimination skills, as they practice recognizing details in common items found in schools. Visual discrimination skills help young children spot subtle differences in photos and objects. Having strong visual discrimination skills are especially important as young children begin to sort out different letters, numbers, and shapes.
