The greatest benefit of GeoFun is that it lays the foundation for enjoyable learning through investigation. Children experiment with different problem situations in which they use their judgment while performing a task that involves exploring, drawing conclusions, thinking and considering alternative solutions. Using GeoFun is a great way to foster important skills such as fine motor, color and shape recognition, patterning, and numeracy. Group the plastic geometric shapes by color then stack the pieces on the sorting bar according to the task cards. Great for reinforcing matching and fine motor skills. Kids develop the ability to "translate" a picture from two dimensions, as on the task card, to three dimensions, as on the sorting stand. Set includes 36 plastic pieces in 6 geometric shapes and 6 colors, 2 connecting bases, 6 sorting rods, and 10 double-sided activity cards.
