Once you “grow” these water-filled cubes, you won’t be able to put them down!

<bold>What Does It Teach?</bold>

Like all of our fun and fascinating polymer products, these tiny cubes, teach a big lesson… in math, chemistry and the importance these thirsty cubes can play in maintaining a healthy environment. The possibilities for experimentation are endless when you drop these cubes in water. Try drying them out to see how quickly evaporation can take over… and then use them again and again. The included activity guide will guide you through making the math and science connection.
