The Pink Tower is a set of cubes that develop visual discrimination of size in 3 dimensions. Exploration with this material prepares the child for mathematical concepts in the decimal system, geometry and volume.
“…a child must recognize the gradation in size and build the tower beginning with the largest cube and finally placing the smallest cube on top. The exercise is self-correcting because a block placed in the improper order will be immediately noticeable and cause the tower to topple” A Parents’ Guide to the Montessori Classroom by Aline D.
