Description of how the game can be used to fit the categories: This fun and challenging game can be used to help players develop cognitive skills. In order to complete this game, the players must figure out how the nine squares match up together to create the final image. This requires problem solving skills. Concentration is necessary for this game because the players must focus on the different squares to be able to see what pieces can go together and make the final picture. Eye/hand coordination is involved in this game because the players must see which pieces they need to move to put the picture together and then coordinate the movement of their hands and arms to actually move the squares around. Postural development can be incorporated into this activity by having the player complete this task by laying on their belly. This can help develop core strength and aid the player when they need to sit upright for extended periods of time.
