Un Box It

The “UnBoxIT” game aims at improving visual recognition, language development, and motor planning skills. The student needs to find the pairs of objects that are hidden in boxes that are opened when their hand stays steady for few seconds.

The teacher/therapist can choose among various libraries of objects (e.g. animals, furniture, fruits, weather, clothes, numbers, letters, verbs, etc.) thus improving the student’s ability to recognize objects from various conceptual categories. The game enables the teacher to add visual and/or audio distractors in order to challenge the student’s attention and concentration skills. Visual memory can be refined by having objects that only differ slightly in the boxes.

Ready to find the pairs of similar objects which are hidden in the boxes?
