Question and answer
What is the difference between fine and gross motor skills?
The difference is Motor skills are motions carried out when the brain, nervous system, and muscles work together. [ Fine motor skills are small movements – such as grabbing something with your thumb and forefinger – that use the small muscles of the fingers, toes, wrists, lips, and tongue. Gross motor skills are the bigger movements – such as running and jumping – that use the large muscles in
the arms, legs, torso, and feet. ]
