Geometric Solids with Stands Bases and Box
The Geometric Solids are a key part of the sensorial curriculum area, allowing children to understand 3D shapes by making them tangible objects. Bright blue and commanding, they draw children of all ages in to touch and explore them.
The Geometric Solids are one of many Montessori materials that challenge and shape a child’s stereognosis sense, which is their ability to perceive and understand both the form and nature of objects through touch. Through manual manipulation of the geometric solids, a child uses her muscular-tactile senses, as well as sharpening her visual perception of solid figures.
These geometric solids are all the same colour so that the child can focus on what is different about the solids: their shape, their appearance, the way they feel in her hands, and the way they act upon a flat surface.
- The Geometric Solids comprises ten solid wooden shapes that are coloured in a bright blue. The shapes include a triangular prism, a rectangular prism, a cube, a cylinder, a cone, a triangular pyramid, a square pyramid, a sphere an ellipsoid and an ovoid. This premium set comes complete with five wooden plane figures and three wooden stands for the curved solids, all comes stored on a well crafted wooden box.
- The clear visual differences between the shapes act as the control of error, helping the children to correct their own work.
