Kids choose an Activity Card, then select and position the Shape Care Cards to re-create the design shown. Determining which shapes to use, and in which order, helps kids develop critical thinking, logic, and scientific reasoning skills. Activity Cards are leveled so 3 to 5-year-old children can be successful and challenged while learning about coding! Set includes 40 laminated Activity Cards, 24 clear plastic Shape Cards, and wooden Card Holder with storage feature.
- PROMOTES CRITICAL THINKING, LOGIC, AND SCIENTIFIC REASONING: Place an Activity Card on one side of the card holder, then select and position the Shape Cards on the other side. Kids analyze the design, select the shapes, and decide in which order the shapes should be placed to re-create the design shown. Kids will be developing critical executive functioning skills as they make decisions to solve a problem, step by step learning about coding - all while having fun!
- MULTIPLE ACTIVITY LEVELS FOR 3 - 5 YEAR OLDS: 40 Activity Cards are leveled so everyone can be successful. 24 Shape Cards are printed with bright colors and simple shapes that, when combined in a specific order, make the designs shown on the Activity Cards. Start by re-creating designs with small and large shapes of different colors in Level 1. Then try a Level 2 design with two different shapes. Finally, re-create the more challenging Level 3 designs using three different shapes. Or, use the Shape Cards to create your very own design!
- SELF-CHECKING FOR IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK: Kids will know right away if they selected the right shapes and put them in the right order just by comparing the two designs. If something's not quite right, it's simple to move cards to a different position. And each Activity Card has each step printed on the back for helpful hints.
- CARD HOLDER DOUBLES AS HANDY STORAGE: Activity and Shape Cards are held at a comfortable angle to make them easy to position. All cards fit in the back of the Card Holder - the entire set is compact and convenient!
- QUALITY DURABLE MATERIALS: Card holder (9-3/4 inches x 5-1/2 inches x 3 inches high) is made of beautifully varnished plywood with sliding rear door that reveals storage compartment. All Cards are a generous 4-1/4 inches square; Activity Cards are laminated cardstock; Shape Cards are clear plastic.
