Curling Stones - Bag of 8
Description / Curling Stones - Bag of 8
Curlers will need to judge the amount of force given to a stone in order to make it land on a particular spot. Different values, fractions or sums could be attributed to table-top targets, prompting students to practise their numeracy skills depending on which their stone lands on. The set of eight ball bearing curling stones come in a convenient storage bag.
Though foremost aimed at lower to middle primary classes, the games devised can be adapted to meet the needs of the student. For example, the engagement value associated with rolling the curling stones make them ideal for upper primary and lower secondary students who lack motivation and need to practise basic number facts.
Vibrant and engaging
Each bag of eight stones is made up of four vibrant colours: two each of red, yellow, blue and green. As a result, up to four players could use these stones for team games.
This fun learning tool can be applied in a variety of ways to suit lesson themes. Focus on a particular numerical concept or allow students to devise their own table-top games by setting targets and challenges.
In full, this product contains:
- 8x curling stones (two each of red, yellow, blue, and green)
