Color Box 3
Color Box 3 is as engaging as it is beautiful! This material develops the child’s ability to discriminate shades of color from dark to light. The child arranges the mixed-up color tablets in order from darkest to lightest, starting with 1 color hue and working up to all 9.
Constructive Triangles: Large Hexagonal Box
With the Constructive Triangles, the child explores how triangles relate to and can be the building blocks of other plane figures. The Large Hexagonal Box relates obtuse-angled triangles to equilaterals, to quadrilaterals, and to the hexagon. This material provides practice at visualizing and manipulating straight-sided figures in new ways, ones that will be applicable when the child studies equivalence and area in Elementary.
Mini Geometric Solids
Guidepost’s Mini Geometric Solids are perfect for home use in their scale and precision. This set of 10 solids has a clear finish and includes 3 stands for keeping the curvy solids upright.
The Trinomial Cube, one of the most recognizable Montessori materials, is a physical representation of the formula (a + b + c) to the power of 3. With this material, the child explores how the pieces relate to one another in terms of their dimensions, shapes, and colors. It is a puzzle that the child can tackle in stages of increasing challenge; for example, by matching pieces to the box lid, building one layer at a time, or building it outside the box.
