Wheel of Life Puzzles-Life Cycles of Humans Bundle
This product is currently sold out.
Life moves in rhythms and cycles with nature. Our Wheel of Life Puzzles help awaken children to this idea. These puzzles illustrate various life cycles. They familiarize children with how a cycle works - that the end is the beginning again. This builds an understanding and appreciation of the perfection and sustainability of nature’s cycles. It also develops a sense of how these cycles relate to the eight directions taught by indigenous cultures. Cycles begin in the East with the dawning of the day and, continuing clockwise, each puzzle piece reflects the qualities of its directional point and its place on the Wheel.
The Wheel of Life - Life Cycles of Humans Bundle includes the Wheel of Life Puzzle Base, Life Cycle of a Human Female Puzzle, and Life Cycle of a Human Male Puzzle. The wooden base is designed to be used with all Wheel of Life puzzles. Tabs for directions are placed by the child to reinforce their orientation to the eight cardinal points and serve as a control for the puzzle pieces. Each puzzle includes eight puzzle pieces, corresponding text sequence cards, and a teachers guide. This bundle also includes blackline masters so that children can create their own cycles.
