Children learn best about nature in nature! Our fast-paced culture is starving for this connection to the natural world, so let’s start helping children connect.
Available in 8', 10', 12' and 16' sizes, these sandboxes add “X” and “Y” coordinates to allow children to locate buried materials using a grid formula. For example: In the illustration above, one child has buried a “fossil” at coordinate B-7. Another child, given just the coordinate, can locate “B” along one side of the sandbox and “7” along the connecting side of the sandbox. Voilà! A little digging will uncover the buried treasure, and the participants will experience real mathematical and archeological processes in a new and exciting way! In order to protect the integrity of this sandbox, covers are available.
Standard set includes 6 fossil replicas. Deluxe set includes an additional 4 fossil replicas. Typical sets include Dinosaur Egg, Shark Tooth and Saber Tooth Tiger Skull.
