Light Table Shapes

Light Table Shapes

Learning Goal: Spatial Sense, Geometry, Math, Writing

    • Provide students with patterning blocks at light table. Encourage them to build based on a pre-made structure (a cat in this case).
    • The educator can support students in writing the different body parts of the animal that they are re-creating, and discuss the shapes used to create it.
    • A student or the teacher can pre-create the shape/ pattern that everyone else will try to recreate.

We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto.
