Banditlocks® is a kit for creating educational structures which includes a plurality of barbell-shaped pieces formed of a hook-and-loop tape material. The kit includes a hub having a plurality of petals formed on a perimeter formed of a hook-and-loop material and the barbell-shaped pieces are attachable. The kit can be used to create the model of a globe, various three-dimensional shapes, grids, and pictures, and can be utilized for a number of different educational purposes.


Included are four different kits that are used for teaching different subjects:


Students of all ages will learn math skills by using the grid method and visual aids to add, subtract, divide and multiply numbers. They start with a 6 x 9 grid, and the colors represent place value. Teaching strategies and worksheets for each basic function are included.



Students will learn to identify and label oceans and continents, as well as longitude and latitude lines. A series of attachment pieces in the shape of landmasses of the Earth are also provided. A globe structure may be formed from the individual pieces and several naming games may be performed. Teaching strategies for a variety of activities keep it interesting for students and teachers





Learning through the use of graphs is a fun way to introduce even the youngest students to this fundamental skill. Using numbers, letters, or both, is instrumental in locating specific objects within the grid. Teaching strategies and worksheets will help develop this skill in every age range.




Games are always fun learning tools. This one teaches students that goods are traded all over the world. Ships carry supplies to every nation, using longitude and latitude cards to guide their way across the vast seas and oceans. The grid is used as a playing board, and students earn money as exporters/importers. This is a fun way to learn about trading with other countries.
