Light table activities can enhance math, literacy and science, taking them to a whole new level.
One of my favorite things to be on the hunt for, to use in my classroom, is translucent objects for activities on the light table. Sometimes the objects are found where thinking outside the box and using creativity is key. When I come across new items, its also exciting to be able to introduce something different to my scholars.
Dollar store LED light strings can easily become manipulatives for the light table.
The LED light strings have translucent green shamrocks that effortlessly slide off, while allowing the lights to be undamaged and used for something else in the classroom. Learning Resources translucent Dice in Dice make the Roll-n-Cover activity easily differentiated. Students can either count only the outer dice, or the total between the inner dice and the outer dice. The Shamrock LIGHT TABLE Roll-n-Cover includes two sets of boards, to help differentiate the activity for different learning levels.
