Rainbow Pentominoes

Rainbow Pentominoes

Rainbow Pentominoes • PCODE 00-018 • PID 67

Six sets of pentomino puzzles in one tub.

Dominoes have two squares, triominoes have three. So...pentominoes have 5 squares placed edge to edge. There are thirteen distinct pentominoes and each set contains one of each pentomino. There is a wealth of activities and puzzles to be played with pentominoes and great opportunities for mathematical work. Each set comes with a getting started activity sheet. We also stock the Tarquin book: ‘Pentominoes’ for a wide range of activities.

Sturdy and robust for classroom use, these six complete sets of pentominoes in six different colours are an ideal resource for work on pentominoes. They come packed into a strong drum.
