Housing Your STEM Manipulatives

You’re far into the school year and thought you finally had your classroom organized; but now the math manipulatives you ordered back in December are starting to arrive. You’re excited to begin teaching with them, but first, you need to find storage room for the learning materials and make them easily accessible to you, your students and other teachers. Worthington Direct has a variety of portable storage carts that are easy to share with other classrooms, easy to move within your own classroom and roomy enough to hold all your manipulatives.

  • Smith System’s Cascade Mobile Storage Cabinets give you the versatility and complete customizable capability to fit specific needs and make it your own. These mobile storage cabinets make perfect assets to any classroom as they allow educators to easily organize, store, and distribute learning material. They are available in a number of sizes and configurations and can be equipped  with either tote trays or shelves. The tote trays come in a few different sizes with the option to add labels and/or lids. Add lockable doors for extra security or a riser shelf for added work space. The riser shelf allows for other accessories to be added, like a lectern, monitor panel mount, and keyboard tray. Check out the cascade configurator to see popular configurations or virtually create your own Cascade Storage Unit.

  • Our Mobile Wire Basket Push Cart  is perfect for starting your cart collection or for adding on to existing storage. Each shelf is adjustable with a weight capacity of 175 lbs and the two wire basket shelves are perfect for keeping learning materials secure without rolling off. The four swivel casters and two brakes makes this cart easy to be rolled from one area of your classroom to another, allowing students to conveniently share manipulatives. It can also be rolled into another classroom, so you can share with your colleagues.
