Excellerations® Attribute Blocks - Set of 60

From $29.85

Product Overview

Learn color and shape concepts by sorting blocks. These colorful tabletop blocks, with the attributes of size, shape, color and thickness, will promote the development of problem solving using logic.

  • Made of top-quality polystyrene plastic
  • Storage tray and activity guide included
  • 2 thicknesses: 1/4" and 1/16"
  • Large rectangles is 3-1/8" L x 1-1/2" H
  • Small rectangle is 1-1/2"L x 3/4"H
  • Large triangle is 3" each side
  • Small triangle is 1-1/2" each side
  • Large circle is 2-1/4"Dia.
  • Small circle is 1-1/4"Dia.
PreK-K Core Standards
  • K.G.B.6. Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, "Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?"
  • MAT (P) With support, begin to recognize how two shapes can be joined to create another shape.

K-3 Core Standards
  • K.G.A.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
  • K.MD.A.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
  • 1.G.A.2 Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
  • K.G.A.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").
  • 1.G.A.1 Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
  • 2.G.A.1 Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.1 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
