Below is the box that arrived in the mail. I was impressed with the box's design and I was even more impressed when I opened it.
Inside, I found heavy plastic shapes that open on one side. I also found a book with some activities that can be copied by the teacher. There are also 25 task cards that you can use as riddles and to pose questions to students.
There was also a bag of colorful cutouts that go inside the plastic shapes and represent common 3D shapes that kids will see. I played around with a few of them. These colorful pieces that go inside the clear plastic shapes are surprisingly sturdy. They are really thick plastic, almost like they are laminated, and seem like they will hold up well in your students' hands. There are at least 3 different colored pieces to go inside the shapes and a few shapes have many more.
The little toaster oven is my favorite!
I know my students will really enjoy using these 3D shapes in geometry. I love when you can bring real life and math together in a way that makes it easier for students to understand.
