Balance Beans are brightly colored, cute little "bean guys" that will help your youngster learn how to visually balance numbers on the seesaw. Place the red bean guys on the seesaw in the pattern shown on the challenge card. Then use the yellow, blue, and orange bean guys to balance the seesaw. Don't move the red beans, just place the other beans strategically around them. There are 40 challenge cards in the set that range from easy to super hard - a great introduction to balancing equations. It's an elementary algebra concept - made fun!
