Spatial Sense

How we think about things…

spatial reasoning
Spatial Reasoning
  • 7 Types
  • Eye-Motor Coordination
  • Figure-Ground Perception
  • Perceptual Constancy
  • Position-In-Space Perception
  • Perception of Spatial Relationships
  • Visual Discrimination
  • Visual Memory
eye motor coordination
Eye-Motor Coordination
  • “Ability to coordinate vision with movement of the body” (p. 14).
  • Students weak here so busy with working their pencil, they miss the lesson.
  • Activities requiring EMC:
    • Staying within the lines
    • Tracing
    • Connecting dots
figure ground perception
Figure-Ground Perception
  • “Visual act of identifying a specific component in a situation and involves shifts in perception of figures against complex backgrounds…” (p. 15).
  • Bouncing a ball and only “seeing” the ball
  • Activities requiring FGP:
    • Identify figure among overlapping ones
    • Complete a figure
    • Assemble a figure from its parts
perceptual constancy
Perceptual Constancy
  • “Involves the recognition of certain geometric figures presented in a variety of sizes, shadings, textures, and positions in space and discrimination from similar figures” (p. 15).
  • Piaget – conservation of shape
    • Age 4 – 5 not a square
    • Age 6 – 7 same piece, but no longer a square
    • Age 8 – 9 both are squares
  • Activities requiring PC:
    • Identifying similar figures
    • Ordering objects by size
    • Identifying congruent figures
position in space perception
Position-In-Space Perception

d

  • “The ability to relate an object in space to oneself” (p. 17).
  • Children see themselves as the center of all things – all things are above, below, behind, or in front of them
  • Problems with PISP mean problems reading and writing as well as in math
  • Activities requiring PISP:
    • Drawing congruent figures
    • Identifying flip, slide, and turn images

perception of spatial relationships
Perception of Spatial Relationships
  • “The ability to see two or more objects in relation to oneself or in relation to each other” (p. 17).
  • Closely related to PISP
  • Requires strong sense of body orientation
  • Activities requiring POSR:
    • Judging distances of things around you
    • Playing ball
    • Riding a bicycle
visual discrimination
Visual Discrimination
  • “The ability to identify similarities and differences between or among objects” (p. 18).
  • Independent of position
  • Activities requiring VisD:
    • Sorting and classifying objects
    • Sorting and classifying geometric shapes
    • Working with attribute blocks
visual memory
Visual Memory
  • “The ability to recall accurately objects no longer in view and relate their characteristics to other objects either in view or not in view” (p. 18).
  • Extreme case: Photographic memory
  • Most people can remember 5 – 7 objects for short periods of time
  • Activities requiring VM:
    • Briefly seeing a picture and then listing all of the things seen
    • Copying a figure seen briefly on a Geoboard to dot paper
