Magna-Tects can explore measurement, shape, and size while playing and building with Magna-Tiles! This allows Magna-Tects to use words and vocabulary including:
- comparing shapes and sizes
- using a ruler/tape measure
- tracing shapes
- paper/graph paper
Challenge Magna-Tects to measure Magna-Tiles with a ruler
- Magna-Tiles small squares measure 3 inches
- Magna-Tiles large squares measure 6 inches
Challenge Magna-Tects to trace Magna-Tiles on paper or graph paper! Trace Magna-Tiles individually or make 2-D shapes (rectangle, hexagon, trapezoid). They can then draw and write notes. Older Magna-Tects can explore concepts of finding the area and perimeter of 2-D shapes that they create.
Q: How tall are you in Magna-Tiles shapes?
Challenge Magna-Tects to use a tape measure to find out how tall their Magna-Tiles Towers are! They can answer in the number of pieces (my tower is 8 small squares tall!) or in units (my tower is 8 feet tall!)
