STEM companies need visually creative people. Geometric thinking prepares students to creatively visualize objects in various positions and different perspectives. The new Think Tank Measurement & Geometry Set grades 1-6 enables essential skill practice in visual/spatial thinking and reasoning skills.
Think Tank Measurement & Geometry Set Grades 1-6 Contents:
Written in English on one side and Spanish on the other, students work in pairs or independently to complete each activity. The activity cards are separated into easy to understand categories that become progressively more challenging as students move through the Think Tank.
This resource makes for an ideal “center” that allows for math practice throughout the school day. Each award winningThink Tank provides a student progress chart, answer keys, and identifies which activities are best suited to assess the performance of student understanding.
“Think Tanks are an excellent resource to help me meet the needs of my heterogeneous classroom. They are self-directed, easy for kids to monitor their own progress, and provocative of children’s curiosity. They help with that, ‘I’m finished, what do I do now?’ time as well as make an excellent choice during “centers” time.”
