Many students with vision impairment have at least some usable vision. By exercising that vision students will be able to maximize it for use. To that end, this activity works to develop reaching, exploration, and manipulation of objects positioned at near and distant locations, and in varying areas of the visual field. Participating students will reach and explore each object during this activity. Lessons include Orientation and Mobility, Concept Development, and English Language Arts.
