- Counts unsystematically but attempts to account for internal cubes.
- Counts systematically, trying to account for outside and inside cubes.
- Counts the numbers of cubes in one row or column of a 3D structure and using skip counting to get the total.
Help your student become a(n) Initial Composite 3D Structurer
Activities help children start to develop spatial structuring–organizing objects in space such as cubes into rows, columns, and layers. Challenge childen to organize their counting, such as counting in rows and then keep counting or making such rows.
