The Roman arch – Nienhuis Montessori
The Nienhuis Montessori Roman arch is an ingenious representation of a classic design and is entirely made of beechwood. Working with the arch allows the child to discover the principle of the keystone and its function in the support of an arch.
The principle of the arch can be experienced by building with the wooden blocks. The key to the secret of the arch is the middle of the nine blocks: the keystone. When the keystone is removed the arch will collapse.
This material is suitable for children aged 3-12 years.
1 Roman arch
