3d Shapes and shadows
Composed of 9 wooden shapes, 3 wooden bases, and 18 double-sided
cardboard squares, this educational toy is designed to familiarize children with
the connection between concrete three-dimensional geometric shapes and the
two-dimensional shadows that they project. Starting from basic shape-shadow
recognition, the child will progress to more complex relationships that form the
basis of mathematics and drawing. A small child will first match a wooden
piece to the corresponding shape on the wooden base or on a cardboard
square. Next, he/she will look for a cardboard square that matches the adjacent
sides of the wooden piece on the base to observe how the shadow of a three dimensional object changes when it is viewed from a different side.
