Material Discovery Kit

This kit, complete with seesaw for comparing the weights of different items, is a great way for children to learn about properties of materials. Each kit contains a selection of cork, timber and foam blocks and storage stands to keep everything neat and tidy at the end of the day. The storage stands could also be used for counting, numeracy activities or matching games. How many timber blocks makes the see saw balance when one child stands at the other end? How about using cork or foam?
