Study compound shapes and geometric relationships using 3D models!
Mathematics and critical thinking collide in this fun pentominoes game where students interact with 3D foam shapes. Discuss the composition of a pentomino – a 3D object with five squares or cubes – then experience them through hands-on activity. They’ll use pentominoes to create compound shapes and understand geometric relationships as they use spatial reasoning to assemble cubes, complex shapes, and fun designs like animals. Lesson direction features teacher worksheets that provide a visual starting point for students to complete the task. Polyurethane foam pentominoes are constructed of 12 variations of five 6" x 6" cubes. Set includes 12 pentominoes and lesson direction. 15 lb. Recommended for Upper Elementary.
