Young children at preschool age who are introduced to explore and experience Spatial Sense Concept is said to have a better reasoning in Geometric Thinking. Spatial Sense is defined as an intuition about shapes and the relationships among shapes. Spatial Sense includes the ability to mentally visualize objects and spatial relationships - to toggle things and objects around one's mind. It includes a comfort with Geometric descriptions of objects and position.
I began to realise the truth in the statement from the textbook,
Elementary & Middle School Mathematics - Teaching Developmentally, which states that ;
" People with well developed spatial sense appreciate geometric form in art, nature and architecture. They are able to use geometric ideas to describe and analyze their world.
Some people say they are not good with shape or rather having poor spatial sense.The typical belief is that
some people either are or are not born with spatial sense. The writer simply disagree! The truth is
rich experiences with shapes and spatial relationships, when provided consistently over time, can and do develop spatial sense.
