Plates depicting different shapes. Each plate is made up of two parts - the one depicting the shape in question and the one with the matching cut-out for that shape. The parts can be put together or used separately. The plates are ideal for practicing fine motor skills, either by putting them together or by tracing shapes. They can also be useful for learning foreign languages by visualizing vocabulary. The models can also be used for tactile activities, such as guessing what shape is on each plate.
The models will be particularly useful when working with pupils with special educational needs and in early childhood education classes. The model will also prove useful in language classes - it will facilitate learning vocabulary and simple phrases about shapes. Depending on the colors of the filaments, they can also help while learning about colors.
Elements of the model
The set consists of 10 models: elements presenting various shapes. The files were prepared in such a way that you can print them separately or as a group.
If you want to print more copies of the selected item, you can use the multiplier in the slicer ("multiply model" function). Use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the desired number of models and the slicer will automatically place them on the printbed.
