Best Uses

• Visual Aid

Comments about Magnetic Metric Staircase:

This product is fantastic for classroom instruction! I used it as a visual aid during a recent lesson on the metric system. We then left it up as reference tool after the lesson, and it has really come in handy. The kids enjoyed the foam manipulatives and I liked how the magnets on them were actually powerful enough to hold them in place! I also like the inclusion of the arrows with the operations in them. This feature truly helped my students understand how to convert units. I really do not see any flaws in this product and I highly recommend it to other teachers! Makes for a great decoration which is easy to put up and take down! ☺

Heavy duty magnet makes it perfect for a teacher's magnetic whiteboard. Cat and shoe pieces are heavy duty foam. This visual makes it simple to teach students how to make metric conversions. It was a complete pleasure to review this product.
