Product Description

The geometric solids are another of Montessori's well-known didactic materials to help children experience 3-dimensional geometry. They are used:

  • To refine the stereognostic sense.
  • To bring awareness of three-dimensional/solid shapes to objects in the environment.
  • To move from sensorial to abstract geometry.
  • To review the names of the solids and their properties.
  • To prepare for the derivation of the formula(s) for volume.

This resource includes:

  • Geometric solids material analysis
  • A series of 4 Presentations
  • Detailed step-by-step presentation instructions
  • Dozens of step-by-step photographs
  • With each presentation is given the purpose, direct aim(s), indirect aim(s), control of error, and points of consciousness

This bundle is useful for children from ages 4-9 years of age and up.

Use the Geometric Solids after the Constructive Triangles and Geometry Cabinet have been introduced and the child is familiar with the names of the shapes.
