The perfect addition to your morning STEM tubs, these challenge cards ask students to make a variety of different 2D shapes from pattern blocks. Ideal for building visual discrimination skills as children have to rotate and flip smaller shapes to create the new shape.
Focus shapes included - triangle, square, rectangle, rhombus/diamond, hexagon, trapezoid.
Perfect to use as an invitation to play in the Early Years, as math centers or even as a cross-curriculum literacy center for early readers to help build math language. Four types of cards make differentiation easier than ever!
