The PTA at my school gives each teacher \$150 a year to spend in their classroom. Guess who has already spent her \$150 PTA money (and then some!) for next year. I am so in love with this!!!! They had one set up at the wine festival yesterday and I knew I had to have it for my classroom.

This Connect 4 outdoor or indoor game weighs 27.5 pounds and measures 47.6″ L × 17.7″ W × 46″ H when fully assembled.

So much fun! - Yours is going to be the room all the kids want!

(And I don't know what grade you teach, but you can also do everything from patterns to addition to arrays and multiplication on it - in case anyone raises eyebrows about educational benefits.)

ETA - Oooh, and fractions, I almost forgot fractions!

We had a lot of giant yard games like that at my old school. We used them a lot for indoor recess and whole class rewards!

I teach Kindergarten, so play is a crucial piece of my practice. I hadn't thought about patterns, though! Wheeeee

I just got home from the county fair a bit ago and saw something like this getting some use in the Kids Zone. What fun!

That's awesome. Connect 4 is one of my favorite games for teaching turn taking.
