Spatial intelligence

Grade 4 math class was trying out and critiquing three different sets of instructions for building a cube structure. Then they wrote instructions for a buddy to build and evaluate. Now they are analyzing which instructions are effective and why.

The greenhouse construction crew is building tables and benches from wooden pallets.

Skills: cooperation, coordination, planning, three-dimensional design, trial and error (hammer and saw operation and safety...)
