Spatial Thinking is the way we navigate the world around us and is critical for many STEM careers.
This month we explore Spatial Thinking in two ways -
1. Making the Paper doll involves thinking spatially, as the paper is wrapped and folded to create a Sari.
2. Weaving involves thinking spatially as well. As you weave you have go over and under the warp threads in a pattern and think about the opposite pattern of under and over as you return!
Spatial reasoning and thinking also lead to advantages in Math skills at school.
So get your 3D hat on and start your spatial exploration!
MY DADIMA WEARS A SARI
Written by Kashmira Seth, Illustrated by Yoshiko JaeggiEvery day, Rupa’s grandmother wears a beautiful sari. Dadima wears her saris around the house and around the town. Some are made of cotton and some are made of fine silk. Each is brightly colored and very beautiful.
PAPER DOLL IN A SARI
Create a Paper Doll wearing a Sari, explore spatial and 3D thinking! We also explore how saris are woven with a little weaving project of our own using jewel-toned recycled sari yarn, exploring spatial reasoning and pattern awareness!Subscribe to Toka Explorer Gift a Box
