Geoblox models provide a multi-learning approach to helping students understand a concept or a structure from the inside out as they build their own models. Activities, such as drawing diagrams of models before they’re built, provide opportunities for students to develop thinking skills.
NOTE: Models do not come preassembled. Students and educators are meant to use the patterns and instructions in the booklet to construct the models for educational purposes. Constructed models can then be used as a permanent classroom display.
Each set of model patterns is comb bound and can be used as a copymaster, which produces enough material for an entire class. Models can also be enlarged for use as demonstration models.
