Discover some of the world’s most famous landmarks with the AROUND THE WORLD TOOB® set, which includes the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Empire State Building, Taj Mahal, Arc de Triomphe, Pyramids of Giza, Temple of Inscriptions, and Parthenon.
This pack from the “Teaching with TOOBS®” collection includes the following activities:
- The MONTESSORI MATCHING MAT builds sorting and classifying skills, vocabulary development, and knowledge of world landmarks and symbols.
-The ROLL AND COVER ADDITION GAME is a fun way to practice addition skills. Add a set of dice and let children roll their way to mastery. Children roll the dice, add the two numbers together, and then cover the sum with the matching TOOB® figure.
-Did you know that the minute hands on Big Ben are 14 feet long? Each MAP FACTS MATCHING CARD includes a “fun fact” about each landmark and a world map showing its location.
-The BEGINNING SOUNDS CARDS develop phonetic recognition while children learn to identify each landmark.
NOTE: As a bonus, I’ve included the seven figures of the WORLD LANDMARKS TOOB® —the Great Wall of China, Sphinx, Easter Island statues, Stonehenge, Tian Tan Buddha, Colosseum, and Mount Rushmore—in both the Matching Cards and Beginning Sounds Game.
Technical info: Each image is a high-resolution photograph with a minimum of 300 dpi, and I’ve repeated the same photos throughout the set to further reinforce vocabulary development.
