Warning! These bones are guaranteed to cause a lot of excitement! Dinosaurs are a source of fascination for many children and they will find much to entertain and educate them with our Dinosaur Bones resources. The 16 bones, cast from a durable and unique stone mix, measure between 2.5–8’’and can be used to introduce the concepts of sorting, measuring, doubling and halving. Children will love to discuss their discoveries and this set provides the perfect opportunity to develop and practice the descriptive language of measurement.
Such brilliant materials to introduce early math concepts through play and senatorial discovery. My 30 mo. old was immediately drawn to these when I set up a Dino-dig sensory bin for her! She had so much fun digging for “fossils” and comparing their sizes. These bones definitely have some weight to them, so that’s something to keep in mind if you have a child that likes to throw things (my 15 mo. old). Yellow Door also sells a set of match and measure cards to accompany this set, and I think together, these materials would make for amazing math materials for older toddlers!
