The Geometric Cabinet: Lessons and Extensions

The geometric cabinet is an ingenious Montessori material. This cabinet along with three inexpensive tools can be used to teach the concepts of the entire elementary geometry curriculum. During this session, learn more about this dynamic material, the lessons you can give, and extensions that are possible. These concepts range from identification of various shapes to calculations of area and volume within them. Join me for this exciting approach to geometry.
