Description:

This hands-on activity helps students develop spatial sense and scaling concepts. Students use interlocking cubes to build first a chair and then a table of appropriate size for the chair. The student goes on to build two other sets of chairs and tables to make three different sizes in all. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, and ideas for extension.
