Chris Builds with Window Blocks

Delivery Method: 

In this set of clips, five-year-old Chris builds with square window blocks on a classroom table. This videative provides an excellent opportunity to watch Chris solve spatial problems. He modifies block orientation and placement to find each block's center of gravity. He persistently works to achieve bilateral symmetry in the design of his structure. Eventually we see that he understands the implication of how fitting one block here now means that he is also able to place the other block there. Incidentally, Chris's school realized his competence more fully when his evaluation team took a look at this video.
