A simplex approach for the organization of space and time in childhood
Children establish relationships between objects in space thanks to the orientation of their own body through the use of axes and plans, and through the use of lateral dominance, following the internalization and verbalization
processes of the related concepts.
The National Guidelines issued by the Ministry of Education in 2012 identify a series of specific learning objectives for primary school within the physical education curriculum. Among these is the role of the body and its relation to space and time. To meet these objectives, it is possible to propose practical activities with the aim of investigating the level of space-time orientation in
terms of dominance, laterality and lateralization in primary school children. Refining lateralization skills is fundamental as it represents the preparatory process for the acquisition of basic motor schemes.
