Description of how game/toy can be used to fit the categories: The Miles from Tomorrowland Rockin’ Rocket game is a fun way to practice problem solving skills for players. When the player spins the spinner, they must put a piece of cargo on the rocket without having the cargo fall off of the unbalanced rocket. In order to not tip the rocket, the player must use problem solving skills to ensure that they place the cargo in a spot that will not tip the rocket and make all of the cargo fall off. Fine motor skills are incorporated into this game as the player must pick up the little pieces of cargo and place them on the unbalanced rocket piece. This requires finger dexterity for the player. Cause and effect is incorporated in this game because when the player places a piece of cargo on the ship, the placement affects the unbalanced rocket. If the player puts the cargo too far from the end and it is unbalanced, all of the pieces will fall off. Concentration is incorporated in this game as the player must focus on putting the piece on the rocket carefully so the pieces do not fall off.
