Hi Michelle & all,
I teach K-5 and we use these plastic tools that work great. They are
a blue-green color and look just like the "real" wooden modeling tools I
used in college. But they are only about $2 per set, through discount
school supply (used to be re-print company). Anyway, they used to come
in a neat plastic storage bag, with one slot for each of the 7 tools in
the set. Unfortunately, now they are "blister packed" so once you
remove them you must store them in some other way (I use a ziploc
baggie). I have one set for each table in my room. Luckily I have 6 of
the sets with the neat storage bag, so it's easy to see if a tool is
missing. For the other two tables, I just make sure to count them
before they are turned in.
Anyway, these tools have been great because they are easily washed,
don't break or splinter, etc. and the cost is very attractive. I
probably wouldn't use them with HS kids, though. I'd want them to have
the "real thing."

good luck!
