Choose pieces from your Think-EEZ kit.
Count out five of one item and ten of another and so on depending on what the highest number you are going to.
Count them out loud for the child then have them count with you.
Keep practicing until they can count the pieces with out any assistance.

This activity is for children 3-6 who are learning what it means to estimate and take an educated guess.
1. Build a 3D shape (box, triangle, etc)
2. Pin the cloth around the shape, so that balloons can fit into the shape.
2. Blow up balloons in various sizes.
3. Have the children guess how many balloons they can fit into the shape. Talk about the...

Intersecting lines are lines that cross each other. Please illustrate intersecting lines.
This is is great.
It looks like you understand the concept, but we are working in three dimensions right now. Technically, those lines are on different planes and may not intersect.
We are not going to get into planes right now, but we will learn more about...

Build me a line

What is a line? Answer a line goes on forever in two directions.
We are going to use the yellow balls at the end to show an end to a line. Now build me a line.
What is a segment? A segment is a part of a line with two ends. Please build a segment.
What do you think a ray is? Please build a ray.

You will need paper, pencil, and your notes or a resource such as your iPad.
Option 1: Please write a short essay explaining how geometry plays a roll in engineering and design. Explain how geometry can assist us in building stable structures.
Option 2: Discuss angles and describe whether angles would have the same impact on building and...

Build a polygon and ask:
What type of polygon is it?
How many dimensions does it have?
Can we make it have volume?
How can we create volume?
What is volume?
Spend your time making three-dimensional polygons. Pay attention to the obstacles that you find has your building.
If you were a toy engineer what things would you consider...

We know we can absolutely make right triangles. Why do we know we can definitely make a right triangle?
The two forms of right triangles are isosceles right triangles and scalene right triangles. An isosceles right triangle has a right triangle into equal length sides. A scalene right triangle has one right angle and no same length sides.
Please...

In this triangles lesson, we’ll discuss the three different types of triangles. There are equilateral triangles, isosceles triangles, and right triangles.
Do you know what it is to be an isosceles, right, and equilateral triangle?
Your challenge is to build one isosceles triangle, one right triangle, and one equilateral triangle.
Your child should...

This activity was taken from the Noggin BuilderZ beginner activity book
The weight scale activity can be tested with other Noggin BuilderZ pieces or other household items to be used for math and science for many ages.
For the scale you’ll need:
2 spools
3 wheels
7 green rods
Start by putting a green rod through one of the wheels and...
