Parts of the Sea Star Definitions

$20.95 USD

These definition cards match the pages in the "Parts of" the Starfish (a species of Sea Star) book, but in this card format, the children get to mix and match. They can play with phrases as if they were puzzle pieces, all while rebuilding the definitions accurately. This is hands-on learning at its best.
