Montessori Knobbed cylinders

Emboîtements cylindriques

Set 2: diameter decreases as the height increases.

Set 3: diameter decreases as the height remains constant.

Set 4: height decreases as the diameter remains constant.

The knobbed cylinders introduce the visual discrimination of size, they refine the child's perception of dimension and prepare for mathematics activities such as comparison, grading and seriation. The blocks provide a control of error and even a young child can use them successfully.

The child initially works on one block at a time, later the sets are combined and the interrelationships in size are experienced.

Use language such as 'taller', 'smaller', 'heavier', or 'lighter' to compare and describe the shape and size of solids.

ELG: Shape, space and measures: children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

WARNING: Not suitable for 0-3 years - Small Parts: Choking hazard.

Approx 45cm x7cmx 6.5cm (height excluding knobs)
