Let students learn while having fun with the K'NEX EDUCATION Amusement Park Set!This innovative set includes 2,264 K'NEX parts and pieces that come pre-packaged in three durable plastic trays with snap-on lids for easy storage and let children make up to 13 different amusement park rides. The set also comes with a helpful instruction manual that walks children through every step of the building process and a Teacher's Guide that allows classroom mentors to challenge and engage their students directly. Students will benefit from the easy-to-understand layouts of the complex structures, their minds and hands challenged by this set's intermediate difficulty. This set also encourages working in teams of six to eight students, which makes it suitable for classroom settings. This colorful building set promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning, as it combines real-world applications with the subject concepts. This feature makes it perfect for middle school classroom environments, specifically for grade levels five to nine. Aside from its STEM-compatibility, the Amusement Park Set also encourages critical thinking, exploratory learning, problem-solving, discovery, scientific inquiry, investigation, and experimentation. With this set, kids are able to build, investigate, find solutions, and reflect on their work once they're finished. K'NEX Education's teacher and experiment guides are aligned with national educational standards, including ITEEA, NSES, NCTM, NGSS, and Common Core. Boost children's minds and friendships as they play with the K'NEX Education Amusement Park Experience Set!
