Geometric Solids

This is yet another brilliant Montessori invention! Its geometric solids that comes with 2-d shapes pieces that match with the flat planes of each solids. By playing with this solids and matching each solids to its respective 2D shapes, N has learnt that say a cone, has a circle shape at the bottom same as the cylinder; and the rectangular prism has a rectangle shape on one side and a square shape on the other etc. All these he learnt just by exploring these 'toys', no sit- down classroom & listening to boring lectures, wonderful isn't it?
