Introduce design- and systems-thinking to young children through hands-on play with this complete set. Play with ramp systems helps children experience and learn how structure and construction styles affect elevation, speed, distance, and motion.
In addition to ramps and wooden balls, this set also includes sandbags which offer children a new perspective when stacking and building. They are also great for supporting wooden ramps and for providing stability when creating curves, loops, hills and valleys with the rubber ramp. As students become familiar with these materials, they may eventually combine everything in the set to form complex systems. This unstructured play will give educators many opportunities for authentic observation of the rich learning taking place.
When it's time to tidy up your space, children can help by storing the ramps and balls neatly into the included tote bag. The 'Baby Swiss Cheese' towers come apart to store flat; perfect for small spaces!
