Over the summer I was contacted by Learning Resources to review some of their items. I decided to try out their Real World Folding Geometric Shapes and I was not disappointed!

They are super cool! They are clear plastic and you can choose from a wide variety of inserts in order to recreate shapes from the real world!

Here are a few of my kids using them to explore 3D shapes!

3D shapes can be somewhat challenging to differentiate from flat shapes, however with these shapes, kids can see and touch the 3D shapes…plus see how they translate into the real world!

(plus they are so much fun to play with and explore!)

They are so awesome that they recently won the 2013 Learning Magazine’s Teachers’ Choice

for the Classroom Award!

Thank you for offering the chance to win this awesome 3-D shape set!

This is a cool item to offer. It'd really help my kinders to relate these shapes to real life!

Those look really cool, I think my kids would really love them. Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

These 3-D shapes look amazing. This would be a great way to help my students with understanding what a 3-D shape is.

This would be a great tool to use! Some kids can definitely understand new things better when they can "see" examples and hold them!

I am starting to study shapes with my Equals Math groups. These real world shapes would be a perfect addition to my lessons!

Those looks so fun! 🙂

I've seen these around the web! They would be really cool to use during a 3D shape unit! I always look for ways to connect math to real life.
