Constructures Building Set
What does it take to construct a structurally-sound wall, pyramid, or arch? Children explore building techniques to discover how block placement impacts the integrity of a structure. Learn how staggering blocks and the width of the base affects a building, and how to adjust construction techniques to create a stronger structure. Children will also see why the keystone is the most important piece of an arch and how it distributes force to support the arch.
Lightweight blocks are made of dense foam that's easy to stack and is not disruptive when a structure falls. These durable blocks are also great for other building activities. Set includes 52 building blocks (8"L x 6"W x 6"H), 8 arch blocks (8"L x 6"W x 5"H), 1 keystone (9"L x 7"W, 5-1/2"H), and lesson direction. Ages 4 and up.
