Dive into Shapes! A "Sea" and Build Geometry Set

Plunge below the surface of geometry and dive into shapes! This sea-enchanted building set is aligned to all first-grade Common Core geometry standards, providing your students with a school of opportunities to build and explore shapes. Construct 2-D, 3-D, and composite shapes, master shape attributes. partition circles and squares into 2 and 4 equal parts - this is learning that travels a thousand fathoms deep!

Dive Into Shapes! includes the following pieces:

  • 16 Orange Connectors (10 holes)
  • 18 Red Connectors (8 holes)
  • 16 Long Sticks
  • 24 Medium Sticks
  • 20 Small Sticks
  • 20 Curves
  • 15 Double-sided Activity Cards


Notes for use:

  • Before using the cards, give the students time to become familiar with the pieces. Let them explore how the connectors and sticks fit together prior to step-by-step construction
  • There are enough pieces in this set for 4 students to stimultaneously build 2-dimensional shapes, and for 2-3 students to build 2-dimensional shapes
  • The holes around the circumferences of each connector are spaced differently. The red connectors have holes 60 degrees apart, and the orange connectors have holes 45 degrees apart
