Figures & Drivers Sets

“It holds their interest for an extended period of time.” “The mat of ideas of things to build were very helpful for me and the students who are not that creative!” “They learned about 3D solids & were able to clearly see what VOLUME means.” “I would recommend this product because it makes these geometric terms more concrete to the students because they are making the figures and holding them in their hands. And is FUN! Math should be fun and enjoyable… and I think this product achieves that goal!” “I think that all kindergarten and first grade rooms should have these as a resource. They are a great resource for many concepts in math and science.”
