Set supplied in a sturdy storage jar and comes in 6 different colours; yellow, green, blue, red, orange and purple. The counters measure approximately 2.5 to 5cm. Use these counters for a wide range of (mathematical) activities. Sort the marine creatures by shapeas well as colour. Or create a pattern of sea life animals. The counters also invite students to create stories about the ocean and the animals that live there.

The ability to sort objects and classify them according to specific features is an important aspect of early mathematical thinking, along with the development of counting. Furthermore the process of counting is a complex one involving building an understanding of the order of number names, the ability to match number words with objects in a collection and understanding the cardinal aspect of a number. As a result the use of materials for counting and sorting assists children in building skills of conservation, classifying, comparing, ordering and patterning. The sea life counters are suitable for children from the age of 3 years and above.
