Besides being fun, puzzles are an often overlooked educational tool. I’ve used puzzles to teach my children about the world. I also love using 4D Cityscape Time puzzles in our history lessons, as they allow children to see how historical events shape cities and countries.

I believe in hands on learning wherever possible, in all school subjects. So when I was offered the chance to review three new Dr. Livingston human body jumbo learning puzzles, I said yes. I knew these puzzles would be fantastic for teaching my children about the human body.

Fun Ways to Teach Kids Geometry

Geometry fascinates kids when you make it a hands-on experience! Today I’m showcasing some of my favorite hands-on geometry learning activities for kids. These simple tools and activity bring geometry to life, inspiring kids to work to learn more.

What Is Geometry?

Geometry is the study of lines, angles, surfaces, solids and points – how to measure them and how they relate to each other. Sizes, shapes, and positions of lines, angles, surfaces, solids, and points are also studied.

My eleven-year-old daughter put together these simple math manipulatives using some colored craft sticks Horizon Group USA sent us to play with. I love her simple visualization of acute, right, and obtuse angles, and the hands-on aspect of the activity helped solidify the definitions of these different angles for her younger siblings.

Hands-On Geometry Learning Resources

I stock my home with geometry learning tools so that my kids learn the basics of this subset of mathematics through play and exploration in their free time.

Pattern blocks are my favorite geometric learning manipulative. Children learn a lot about shapes and angles through free play with these blocks! We often pair this toy with contact paper to keep pattern blocks from slipping and sliding on the floor as well as to create beautiful pattern block mosaic art on our walls. If you are looking for more formal pattern blocks based activities, hand2mind has some great pattern block activities.

y third grader is loving Beast Academy as her math curriculum this year! This series teaches a lot of geometry, which is why I mention it here. The content moves quickly, but the graphic novel style textbook and straightforward explanations keep kids engaged and learning.

  1. The geometric shapes from Learning Resources are fabulous! I love your idea of putting together different types of triangles using craft sticks. I will definitely have to keep that in mind! Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are great ideas! My kids did some of these when they were younger. I always liked ways to make math more like a game.
