Look and See! Touch and Feel! Training the Senses of Children from Six to Fourteen years of Age with New Play Materials

Description
Documentation received with Catherine Stern's apparatus for teaching arithmetic suggests how her ideas changed over time. This publication from about 1939 describes apparatus aimed at generally training the senses rather than teaching about numbers and arithmetic.
For Stern's later apparatus, see 2005.0229.01 and 2005.0229.02. Other documentation is part of transaction 2005.3100.
