プラレールは、段取り感覚を身につける最適な一歩 ~幼児期から感覚で段取りを身につける知育玩具

タカラトミーが発売しているプラレール。

 

たかが玩具と言ってしまえばそれまでですが、私はこのプラレールがあったからこそ、段取りが身につくための基礎ができたと思っています。

 

プラレールというとただの電車好きのように思われますが、プラモデルには様々な学びの要素が詰まっています。

 

知育玩具というカテゴリーには含まれませんが、すごい知育玩具だと思います。

プラレールは、青色の線路を繋げて、そこに電車を走らせる玩具(オモチャ)です。

 

基本は、円をつくって、そこを周回させることから始まります。

大人にとって簡単なことも、子どもにはそんな単純なものではありません。

 

カーブレールは、1周が8等分されています。

これを組み合わせて円をつくります。

{03E92740-6DC7-4A59-B6B3-1AD029363F26}

 

もうおわかりかと思いますが、

 

プラレールは、パズルです。

 

凸と凹を組み合わせると、形になるのです。

 

 

そして、円を、楕円にします。

 

{3BA20B00-383A-49E6-9849-3B7F2BC22BB0}

 

このように直線レールを入れて、

 

円の形を元に、直線とカーブとを作って楕円にするというパズル

 

です。

 

そしてこのパズルは、単に形の遊びではないのです。

なんと、

 

自分の作った形で、遊べる

 

のです。

 

パズルは組み上げても眺めるだけですが、そこに電車を走らせられるのです。

 

 

そこに電車を走らせることで、

 

円は繋がっているから、戻ってくる

 

ということを感覚で身につけられるのです。

 

{133FA232-6AEE-4C09-8D4B-5B14702630D6}

 

円が途切れていたら戻らない、ということです。

 

 

これは、循環という考え方です。

 

社会において、循環という考え方を学ぶことを、理論的にはわかっても、感覚で身につけることはあまりできません。

 

 

パズルの要素は、直線レールにもあります。

 

 

{F61BD376-7835-4C38-8B6D-35BA67035F32}

 

直線レールにもいろいろあります。

 

こんな風に、

 

足し算やかけ算、割り算の元になる考え方

 

が身につきます。

 

理論的なことを、感覚的に身につけられる

 

のです。

 

これって、本当にスゴイことだと思うのです。

 

{EA56CA6E-8586-4011-B1E4-B7E1B968A943}

 

そして、単線も複線にすることで、電車の進行方向を交互に走らせたり、競争させることができます。

 

また、複線にすると、周の内側は早く、外側は遅いということもわかります。

 

算数であり、理科の要素がありますよね。

 

 

勾配もつけることによって、電車が上る時に遅くなったり下る時に早くなったりします。

 

理科の要素ですよね。

 

 

走らせる電車にも、新旧があります。

 

 

{57F3CC01-7675-4165-B28A-689500F3F766}

 

石炭で走らせるものから、時速300キロで走る新幹線、最近ではリニアもあります。

 

時代(時間)感覚があったり、昔のことを知れたりします。

 

また、走る電車の形状を見ながら、早い電車の形状から感じることがあります。

 

社会だったり理科だったりする要素もありますよね。

 

 

 

{728C08B4-0CAB-461E-8938-35162545F975}

 

レールにはポイントがあったり、踏切があったり、橋があったりします。

 

情景では、駅があったりトンネルがあったりもします。

 

家の中を電車が巡り、全部の電車を繋げてみたり、長すぎてカーブで倒れてみたり、早すぎて倒れてみたりしながら、

 

なぜだろう?
どうやったらできるのだろう?

 

 

そんなことを考え続けながら、試行錯誤する機会なのです。

 

こんなものをつくりたい

早く動かしたい

 

そんな完成図からパーツを見て創り上げていくことは、段取りの基本です。

 

どうやったらうまくいくかを工夫しながら、そして想像もしないパーツを見つけて、想像以上のものを作り上げる。

 

そしてそこを使って、電車を走らせて遊べるというのは、知育玩具以上の体験や感動をも得られる、スーパー玩具だと思います。

 

私自身は、このプラレールで遊び尽くしたからこそ、今の段取り思考が身についただと確信しています。

 

妹も一緒になって遊んでいますし、これは男子だから女子だからというものでもないと思います。

 

たかが玩具、されど玩具。

 

どのように遊ばせるかで、ただの玩具にもなれば、教育や学習にも変わるものだと思います。

 

ぜひ、あなたの家にもプラレールを。笑

    I wish to show some thanks to you for bailing me out of this particular challenge. Just after exploring throughout the the web and getting concepts which were not beneficial, I thought my entire life was over. Existing without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve fixed all through this review is a crucial case, and the kind that would have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn’t come across your web page. Your actual competence and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was crucial. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your reliable and effective guide. I will not be reluctant to suggest the website to anybody who should get recommendations on this area.

  18. Hey there! I just wish to offer you a huge thumbs
    up for the excellent info you’ve got here on this post.
    I will be coming back to your blog for more soon.

    some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  20. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

    very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thank you

  21. I visited several web sites but the audio quality for audio songs existing at this web site is in fact wonderful.

  22. Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and in depth information you
    offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
    out of date rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve saved
    your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  23. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot
    of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped
    off? I’d truly appreciate it.

  24. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot
    approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I feel that you simply could do with a few % to
    force the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  31. Everything posted made a ton of sense. But, what about this?

    what if you added a little information? I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., but
    what if you added a title that grabbed a person’s
    attention? I mean プラレールは、段取り感覚を身につける最適な一歩 ~幼児期から感覚で段取りを身につける知育玩具 – 段取リズム(dandorism)
    is kinda boring. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and see how
    they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab
    readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little
    livelier.

  32. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Extremely useful information particularly the last part 🙂
    I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this particular info for a
    very long time. Thank you and best of luck.
