A true Tin Man original! The "Discover!" series is a wonderful tool for prompting children to think creatively and deductively by manipulating and thinking about the most ordinary of items.

In these days of diminished attention spans and digital everything, the "Discover!" series serves a fundamental purpose: Allowing a youngster the fun and growth of examining an object in depth.

In all cases, the activities can be done independently and are open-ended enough to appeal to students of varying abilities.

"Discover!" can be used at centers or as individual seatwork. It works superbly in conventional classrooms and in gifted programs, as well as for home-schoolers. It is also a fine motivational tool to encourage reading and writing.

Each set includes 20 activities, plus answers and a teacher card. For ordering convenience, the 24 card sets are divided into Series I and Series II, but you can also order the card sets individually.
