All this in regard to the physical terrain of the benefits of modeling for kids.
Secondly, because their logical reasoning is enriched since the child must assemble an exact copy of a wooden model. You have to plan in advance the stages of assembling the miniature replica and establish in what order to carry them out: logically, to place the masts, first you have to build the hull of the ship or to install the cabin, before the structure must be finished.
