We have been playing around with different manipulatives to use when teaching math. One task was to use 5 linking cubes to make as many different shapes as possible. We also used geometric shapes and one person designed a picture using the shapes and another was the builder. The builder used the designer’s clues to try and replicate the same picture. When completing this activity, we thought about spatial language and what vocabulary we used to communicate with each other by describing and asking questions.
