In the “Match Pictures-Missing Lines” worksheets, the student must scan the column on right side from top to bottom, and identify which picture will look the same as the one on the left if all the lines were completed (mentally fill in the lines).
There are 10 worksheets in this section.
Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Closure is the ability to recognize any given visual stimulus from an incomplete presentation (part of the stimulus is missing). The ability to identify what we are seeing without having to analyze every detail enables us to process information in our environment quickly.
In the “Match Pictures-Missing Lines” worksheets, the student must mentally fill in the missing lines in the pictures in the column on the right, in order to identify the corresponding picture in the column on the left.
Visual Motor Integration
Visual Motor Integration relates to the coordination of visual perceptual skills with body movement (the use of visual information to guide a motor task). For fine motor tasks, the eyes inform the arm and hand muscles where to go like "follow the leader”, so that motor output matches visual input.
In the “Match Pictures-Missing Lines” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to draw a line connecting the pictures in a fluid and controlled manner.
Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration.
To complete the “Match Pictures-Missing Lines” worksheets successfully, the student must attend to one picture at a time within the busy field of the surrounding pictures.
