Polydron Super Kit
Description / Polydron Super Kit
This Super Kit is packed full of durable Polydron supplies to meet the demands of a busy classroom. Suitable for a range of developmental stages and age groups, these seemingly simple shapes can be applied in a multitude of ways to teach fundamental themes in mathematics and technology.
Polydron shapes feature a specialised clip-hinge design, meaning they can be easily joined and manipulated to create complex 3D structures.
Two sets combined!
In this extensive super kit, two Polydron sets are combined: nine shapes are included in both a solid and translucent red, blue, green, and yellow. Some shapes have a cut out feature to facilitate easier building.
Translucent crystal shapes
The translucence feature of the crystal pieces means that when used with a light table or against a light source, students can see inside the 3D structure and appreciate the space within.
Depending on the developmental stage of the students, these simple shapes can be used to practise foundational concepts such as sorting, by applying basic attributes of colour and shape, right through to the planning, construction, and evaluation of complex 3D solids.
