Description of how the game can be used to fit the categories:

Stick Storm Classic is a fun and challenging game that can be utilized to teach players about cause and effect. When a player is building the weave of sticks, it can either have no effect on the structure, or it could have the entire structure explode of sticks. This game shows players that the different pieces of the game all affect each other. This game also incorporates fine motor skills. The player must use their fingers to carefully grab onto one of the sticks tiles and connect it to one of the other sticks in the structure. This requires careful movement and precision in the player’s fingers so they do not have the entire weave of the structure explode! Problem-solving skills are involved in this game because the player must think and figure out which stick is the best stick to place next in the structure so the structure does not explode. Eye/Hand coordination is involved in Stick Storm as well because the player must see which stick they want to add and then carefully coordinate their hand and finger movements to place the stick steadily so the structure does not explode.
