“So cool! I love the Beautiful Discovery boxes. My middle and high school children have loved exploring each box …

As an elementary teacher, I have loved having ideas to use in my classroom to entice those who feel they aren’t “good” at math find mathematical access, relevance, or just plain fun. Thank you for perfectly themed and curated boxes!”
