Ingenuity and architectural brilliance inspired the Romans to incorporate form and function into design.
The arches allowed the acqueducts to flow freely as to provide sufficient water for the growing cities. This large block set allows children to use and learn the same engineering principles the Romans followed. The dimensions of the completed structure are 16" x 6" x 8 3/4".
My rating of Roman Arch Set
Posted 7/4/2008 by Tara Ricciardi
This set was an interesting lesson in itself with regard to building an arch - and the block themselves will become part of our larger collection which is in constant, inventive use by my 5 year old. The pieces were a bit smaller than I anticipated online, but who's to say that's good or bad...I find a variety of shapes and sizes lead to some pretty creative structures around here!
I bought this product for my son, who is a 4th grader, to present at the Science Fair at his school. His project was on Roman arches and the blocks were the perfect companion to demonstrate how an arch is built. It was a great success, and many people were attracted to experimenting with the blocks.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
