- Foster math skills
- Learning shape and volume
- Develop stereognosis sense and visual perception
Math games are fun interactive activities that can change the rhythm of class. As part of the hands-on learning tools, math games and toys help children to be engaged and actively listening. While playing, children practice different math subjects from number recognition to equations. Geometric Solids is one of these learning tools that gives life to geometry class. Introducing three-dimensional shapes from an early age, children are familiarized with geometry. Parents and educators can integrate three-dimensional shapes to the lesson in fun activities where children discover shapes by playing with the figures. Coming up with different challenges that require children to think and exercise problem solving. Learning all the attributes of each individual shape children’s math skills are exercised in an entertaining way.
Sparking a child curiosity for learning, Geometric Solids and other shape toys can be used for Math and Science lessons. The child is involved in the learning process which makes for better attention and retention of the information. Also, Geometric Solids and similar math toys are great visual aids for understanding volume and area of each shape. Using their senses children explore geometric concepts. For example, removing the base of the three-dimensional shapes, the child can fill them with water to compare each shape’s volume. Sorting and classifying each shape by the volume, area, and mass. It is important in hands-on learning that the child participate in the lesson instead of only observing and listening. Creating wonderful memories and having fun while learning.
Other cognitive skill that is foster through this hands-on learning tools is stereognosis sense. Geometric shapes have similarities and differences and by touching each shape can help children distinguish these properties better than visuals. Learning how to identify a shape without looking at it. Counting the shapes edges and flat surfaces. It is a good way of familiarizing young children with real life objects. This type of exercise helps a young child enhance their visual perception and strength their hands muscles. Furthermore, Geometric Solids and similar toys help develop spatial thinking which is important for constructing and engineering. Playing with math games and toys from a young age helps them stimulate their cognitive senses and prepare them for school. Geometric Solid and other math activities add fun to the learning experience.
