This educational game encourages children to use their intelligence, logic and spatial skills to arrange two shapes called pentominoes to create a specific form, shape which resemble familiar objects. Pentominoes (12 shapes in all) use five squares joined together with at least one common side.
The pentomino activities nurture a healthy attitude towards mathematics and science and can be considered as truly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), promote an atmosphere of cooperation, support the development of the problem-solving process and supply spatial-ability skill exercises.
