Geometry Tumbler is a fun, educational game of academic and physical skill.
Inventor Monica E. Davis of Katy, TX has created a new educational game of academic and physical skill.
A game mat with rows of various geometric shapes is spread out on a flat surface. Players must stand on opposite ends of the mat. A referee, whether it be a teacher or parent, spins a spinner and then calls out the geometric shape and body part that the spinner lands on.Ifthe referee says"right hand, trapezoid" playersmust put their right hand on a trapezoid, or else they are out. The players simultaneously follow the directions given by the referee. Each player must choose a vacant spot on the mat to occupy. For example, if one player already has their right hand on an octagon, then the other players must locate an octagon which is not already occupied. If the spinner lands on quadrilateral, the players may choose any four sided shape to place their hand/foot. If a player occupies the incorrect shape, "tumbles" over,or touches the mat with a body part other than their hand or foot,they are eliminated.
This clever new invention is for 2-4 players. It is great for ages 4-10. The game teaches complex shapes like the rhombus, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, and octagon. No assembly is required. The last player to remain on the mat wins! The Geometry Tumbler is a fun, educational game to help children practice their geometric shapes.
