 What is Object Land?

Object Land is the land in which children manipulate and talk about groups of objects. They begin with 3 dimensional objects, which because they are physical, tangible items - form natural quantities for children to talk about and compare. In Object Land children also count and compare groups of 2-dimensioual objects - pictures of objects - which prepare them for the representations of number they will encounter in Picture Land. The set of activities and language that children encounter in Object Land will form the foundation for all their subsequent learning in the domain of Mathematics
