Learning & Exploration

Add ready-made learning and exploration activities and teaching tools into your classroom to simplify your lesson planning and free up time to work with students. These toys, games, and tools capture students' attention. Find durable, reusable materials for every age group.

Teaching Tools
Students often need a visual representation to understand new math concepts, and these learning and exploration tools include base-ten blocks, counting cubes, and geometric shapes that students can manipulate while they complete assignments. Microscopes and space-themed products bring your science curriculum to life and give you the tools you need to keep students interested. Use assessment handbooks to save time when you write lesson plans and tests for students of all levels.

Hands-On Activities
Keep your students' hands and minds occupied with learning and exploration toys and games that teach basic concepts, such as counting and sorting. These tools encourage children to work together, allowing advanced students to assist peers who struggle. The tools are made of resilient materials that are easy to clean, and they stand up to daily use by multiple groups of children. Integrate these tools and other learning games and puzzles into your lesson planning to give you more time to focus on students who need extra help.

Classroom Decoration, Organization
Make your classroom an inviting place for students when you add colorful decorations to encourage learning and exploration. Magnetic borders and frames allow you to change the decorations without damaging surfaces, and you can reuse the embellishments year after year. Use charts and organizers to keep homework and classroom chore assignments all in one place so that students can manage their own schedules.
