Will It Roll or Slide?

Collect different toys, cups, and household items and ask your child to predict if the objects will roll or slide. Some of the objects may even do both! Help your child push a toy along to the floor or table to show the object sliding. Then, have your little one roll that same object. These early experiments will help your child differentiate between geometric attributions.
