Toys from the Past

Wooden toys

Many toys from the past are made of wood. Wood is strong and can be carved into different shapes. Plastic could not be used in the past because people did not know how to make plastic then.

 

Look at these wooden toys from the past. 

Do you know what they are called and how you play with them?

 

The building blocks would have been used to help children to learn their letter sounds and to spell.

What do you use to learn your letter sounds?

 

You may have these toys to play with now.

Is anything different between these old toys and your new ones?
