*STUDENTS* Use Your Strong Spatial Perception in Projects

If your student has strong spatial skills and you want to build their self-awareness and nurture their strength

Types Of Project Presentations You Might Enjoy

  1. Include attractive visual aids like graphs, charts, diagrams, pictures and drawings to demonstrate your knowledge and design skills.
  2. Create a model or poster that conveys the details of your understanding. This could be 3-D or virtual.
  3. Make a board game or puzzle that enables players to learn about the subject or problem you studied in an engaging way. Again, this could be virtual or hands-on.
  4. Make a movie with animations, drawings, designs or puppets.
  5. Create a virtual or 3-D comic strip that uses details in the images as much as words to convey your understanding.
  6. If you're having difficulty thinking of an idea, try to think of interesting-looking projects you have seen before or do a search online. Don't copy what someone else did, but you can certainly use those ideas for inspiration.
  7. If you have a novel idea, go for it! Don't worry about being unconventional. Your teachers and peers are likely to appreciate your creativity.

Why

Spatial ability plays a critical role in developing expertise in STEM fields (Wai et al., 2009). Project-based learning is designed for students to discover and learn about a topic or genre they enjoy and then present their mastery to the class and others beyond the classroom. Given your strong spatial skills you might prefer STEM areas. Even if you do not choose a STEM project, when planning an inquiry and choosing how to present, consider ways to demonstrate your mastery that also enable you to demonstrate your strong visual-spatial skills.
