Vocabulary:

Visual-Spatial Reasoning, Four Color Theorem

Activities:

  • Students played a spatial reasoning game called Blokus, where they laid down as many colored tiles they could span across a 20 x 20 grid.
  • Students could touch the colors of other students, but they could only touch the corners of their own tiles.
  • Students applied the Four Color Theorem to visual puzzles, where they needed to color empty spaces such that no two spaces of the same color touched.
