Dive Into Shapes! A "Sea" and Build Geometry Set
Students who learn better using hands-on manipulatives will really enjoy building geometric shapes with this set. The set includes 34 spherical connectors, 60 color-coded connecting sticks (3 colors, 3 lengths), 20 curved sticks, and 15 double-sided cards with instructions to build different shapes. Pieces are made of hard plastic to withstand repeated use. Students will learn about geometric shapes as they build 2-D shapes like squares, triangles, right triangles, and hexagons; 3-D shapes like cubes, triangular prisms, and cylinders; or combine shapes to build from their imaginations. Students can also learn about fractions and equal portions using this building set. This reminds me of some of the sets used to build molecules or atoms, so why not stretch the use of this set into your science curriculum, or just have some fun building with it? ~ Donna
Splash into geometry! Combine sticks in 3 sizes, along with curves for making circles and cylinders, with 2 different types of connectors to build 2-D shapes. Then, combine them to make new 2-D shapes or even 3-D shapes! Child-friendly set features durable sticks, curves, and connectors. Includes 60 sticks in 3 sizes (2.25", 3.5", 5.25"), 20 curves, 34 connectors (approximately 1" in diameter), and 15 double-sided Activity Cards (30 activities).
