These dazzling magnetic shapes are irresistible to children! They're ideal for exploring spatial relations, color and shape recognition.
  • Unique tiles attract on all sides, allowing for endless creative, free-form 3-D configurations in addition to cubes, pyramids and more
  • The vibrantly-colored shapes promote critical thinking, math reasoning and classifying and sorting by attributes
  • Perfect for light exploration and encouraging imaginative, creative play
  • Addresses multiple STEM objectives such as investigating the effects of strength or direction of push/pull on the motion of an object and planning and conducting investigations of the effects of placing objects of varied materials in light beam paths.
*Shapes included: 18 squares, 8 small right triangles, 8 isosceles triangles, 8 equilateral triangles and 6 trapezoids
*Activity guide included

Dimensions of shapes:
Squares: 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" x 1/4" thick
Rectangles: 5-5/16" x 2-3/4" x 1/4" thick
Small right triangles: 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 1/4" thick
Isosceles triangles: 4-3/4" x 2-3/4" x 1/4" thick
Equilateral triangles: 2-3/4" x 2-1/3" x 1/4" thick
Trapezoids: 5-5/16" x 2-1/3" x 1/4" thick

K-3 Core Standards
  • K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
  • 1-PS4-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
  • 3-PS2-3. Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
  • 3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
  • 3-PS2-4. Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.
  • 3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
