Montessori constructive triangles are brilliant for their hands-on geometry lessons and adaptability for preschool through elementary. At the same time, they’re sensorial materials you can make fairly easily using printables and tutorials found online. Here I’ll include links to printables, tutorials, and ideas for presenting and extending Montessori constructive triangles.
