Portable Sensory Path
Portable Sensory path, Point Pelee, Roll it up like a carpet for storage and unroll it for instant fun, engagement, and learning. Manufactured from heavy-duty vinyl, it can get wet and dirty yet it cleans up with soap and water. Use it on carpet, tile, rubberized sports tracks, or virtually any clean indoor surface. Your students can wear their indoor shoes to participate, however, the porta-path will last longer and look better if they use their socks or bare feet.
Point Pelee National Park is a national park in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, Canada where it extends into Lake Erie. The word pelée is French for ‘bald’. Point Pelee consists of a peninsula of land, mainly of marsh and woodland habitats, that tapers to a sharp point as it extends into Lake Erie.
Currently, our sensory paths are getting international attention as they provide an affordable option for creating organized movement breaks for individual students or groups. They provide an opportunity for all kids to use their bodies appropriately to calm themselves, improve attention, and decrease anxiety. As a result, they can help develop coordination, spatial awareness, and balance (all important components for learning).
