Math tubs provide endless opportunities for the students to explore and create.
As you can see from the pictures the boys are actively engaged with creating and manipulating pieces to design structures. Another student is sorting the shapes by size. Both activities are being completed with supplies that come from the same box.
The girls are using the tub that holds lots of different types of manipulatives. Some of the girls are sorting the objects by what they are (certain animals, food, vehicles). Another girl sorted the objects by color.
I love that the students can get one box out, but can engage with it in some many different ways…endless opportunities for learning!
