Polydrons for All Ages!
Young students enjoy creating 2- and 3- dimensional shapes using the Polydron squares and triangles included with kindergarten and first grade Bridges Packages. Yet this manipulative is adaptable to a wide variety of ages and abilities. When I taught a group of 4th-6th grade gifted students, I brought along a set a Polydrons. Imagine my surprise when the majority of children selected the Polydrons during choice time; it was clearly the most popular activity. They were quite fascinated by this math manipulative and used it to create many geometric structures. If you're looking for more Polydron teaching ideas, download a free user guide.
