Magnetic Pattern Blocks Class Pack
$334.62 inc GST
This magnetic pattern blocks class pack consists of 15 sets of regular sized magnetic pattern blocks (TFC10747) and one teacher sized version (LER9863).
Each set of the regular sized pattern blocks consists of 49 magnetic pieces. The pattern blocks are foam with a magnetic backing. Pattern blocks can be used for a wide range of mathematical activities. The blocks can be used as a sorting activity, by sorting all blocks in the same colour and shape together, or let them sort the blocks by the numbers of sides. Also students can use the pattern blocks to create patterns and sequences. They can learn about symmetry by creating patterns that are mirrored. Pattern blocks are also an ideal resource to show students that one shape can be made by a combination of two or more different shapes, for instance that one hexagon is the same as two trapezoids, or as three parallelograms. Once students get the hang of this, you can use this principle to explain fractions.
The teacher sized version of pattern blocks consists of 52 magnetic pieces, which are 9 times greater in total area than standard pattern blocks. Giant sized pieces based on metric measurements. The square measures 9 x 9cm while blocks made of a plastic laminate with magnetic backing. Pieces are somewhat bendable as not made from a hard plastic. For ages 4 .
