Junior Spelling and Number Board, 1940-1950

Summary

The Junior Spelling and Number Board challenged users to locate letters, numerals, or symbols along a track, then slide them along to complete phrases in the center. On the other side, users could add, subtract, multiply, and divide with single- and multi-digit numerals. Playful images and words around the outside reinforced learning.
