Real World Geometric Shapes Giveaway

Over the summer I was contacted by Learning Resources to review some of their items.  I decided to try out their Real World Folding Geometric Shapes and I was not disappointed!
They are super cool! They are clear plastic and you can choose from a wide variety of inserts in order to recreate shapes from the real world!
 Here are a few of my kids using them to explore 3D shapes!

3D shapes can be somewhat challenging to differentiate from flat shapes, however with these shapes, kids can see and touch the 3D shapes...plus see how they translate into the real world!
(plus they are so much fun to play with and explore!)
They are so awesome that they recently won the 2013 Learning Magazine’s Teachers’ Choice 
for the Classroom Award!
Learning Resources has been kind enough to offer one set of
Real World Folding Geometric Shapes™ to one of my readers!

  12. This would be a great tool to use! Some kids can definitely understand new things better when they can "see" examples and hold them!

  27. Love. I've used similar ones that are solid colors. Our school had them for the older grades but I found unfolding the nets took away some of the mystery and confusion for our Ks. That these look like real life objects makes them even better.
