The Importance of Spatial Reasoning Development in Young Children

Spatial reasoning is the ability to deal with objects in 2-D or 3-D, for example, to look at a building blueprint and visualize the completed building.  Spatial reasoning skill development in young children, such as understanding how to reconstruct recognizable objects from shapes, has been shown to improve a child’s geometry and arithmetic ability, particularly number line knowledge.  Furthermore, spatial reasoning also improves skills such as reading maps, graphs, and diagrams later in life.  Our construction BLAST, includes activities to develop spatial reasoning in several creative ways.
