The class sets are optimized for regular lessons at the elementary level, designed for group work with two or more students and each dealing with a specific, technical topic. A class set, consisting of 2 blue BOX 1000, contains 16 identical individual sets, so that, for example, 15 pupils (or groups) and one teacher can be equipped with one set. Each individual set is stored in a clearly arranged tray with a printed sorting insert for uncomplicated back-sorting. These trays can be taken to individual work stations by the students to promote a smooth teaching process. Accompanied by teaching materials which include lesson plans and task sheets with educational plan references, the CLASS SET Optics is ideal for teaching technical content at the primary level.
