How are houses designed? What shapes do you see in buildings? Our engaging building center teaches kids to look closer at real-life designs—and make original homes that use the same important elements! Created to encourage open-ended building with minimal teacher involvement, our center includes 8 photo cards showing actual buildings, plus tons of hands-on manipulatives that invite children to build, explore and engineer—again and again! For easy reference, the back of each photo card explains
key elements for each design—so it’s easy to guide children’s learning. You get 130 geometric, interlocking plastic pieces and 8 photo cards. Longest building piece measures 4".

Little architects can’t wait to grab their blueprints and get building! Packed with 50 smooth wooden blocks, our center challenges children to re-create 20 different designs using blueprints to help guide their building. Each blueprint features a footprint of the structure that kids can build right on top of—plus illustrations that show the design from 3 different angles…so children get lots of practice with spatial reasoning, building 3-D structures, early STEM skills and more! Center includes
10 double-sided, laminated 13" x 13" blueprints at 3 levels.
