Everyday Fun With Spatial Awareness: Let’s Talk About Math Video
Watch to see how an understanding of spatial awareness develops from birth to 5 years old.
Spatial awareness is an understanding of:
- Shape and size—noticing, describing and comparing shapes and sizes of objects.
- Space and position—recognizing where a person or object is in relation to other people and objects and understanding concepts like “on top of” or “under.”
- Direction and movement—following and predicting the path of a moving object, like a rolling ball.
