Rods are a rectangular, 10-color set. Growing in increments of 1 cm, each colored rod corresponds to a different length. This material provides opportunities for exploring a multitude of concepts…
The children first explored the new material and made important discoveries.
Then they were challenged to make shapes. How many sides would they need? Would a triangle with orange rods look the same as a triangle with blue rods?
Next challenge: making a staircase.
Going up the stairs, down the stairs, up the stairs, down the stairs…
Final challenge: Staircase in a Bag
Which rod did you pull out? Where does it go in the staircase?
