Description

The Golden Beads are the material most essential for teaching the decimal system to children in Montessori schools. It consists of unit beads which are just individual beads, ten bars which are short lengths of wire strung with ten beads, hundred squares which are made of 10 ten bars wired together to make a square, and thousand cubes which are made by wiring together 10 hundred squares.
Golden Bead pic.jpg
Hundred squares and thousand cubes take a long time to make and can be rather expensive, so when doing activities that use a lot of hundreds and thousands, wooden representations of hundreds and thousands are used in the place of the beaded kind.

Unit Bead

The least expensive unit beads available from the vendors below are a little less than a penny a piece.
The beads should be between 6 and 7.5 millimeters in diameter. They should be as spherical as possible so that they are equally wide as long.

6mm Round Gold Plastic Beads

6mm Round Yellow Faceted

Ten Bar

These can be purchased for as low as $0.20 a piece (bought in groups of 45). If you can make them for less than this it could be worthwhile.

Beaded Hundred Square

These can be purchased for as low as $1.67 each (bought in groups of 9).

Beaded Thousand Cube

The lowest price for these is $15.99 each.

Wooden Hundred Square

These can be purchased for as low as $0.44 a piece (bought in groups of 45). If you can make them for less than this it could be worthwhile.

Hundred squares and thousand cubes are 7.5cm across. Hundred squares are 7.5mm thick. (2.95 inches by 0.295 inches)
100 sq measure 1.jpg 100 sq measure 2.jpg

Wooden Thousand Cube

These can be purchased for as low as $2.11 a piece (bought in groups of 9). If you can make them for less than this it could be worthwhile.
