Light Cube: Cube Count

2015-02-23C-FeatureImage

Play with color and light while building on the Light Cube! These little blocks were used to explore concepts in math as well.

Here, we laid out the colorful blocks and asked the student to build a tower as tall as he could make it.

Here, Roberto noticed the saturated blue of the block he was holding and found it amazing how it seemed to change color as he lifted it off and away from the glow of the Light Cube.

Now how do the colors look like all bunched together?

With the amount of clear color blocks we had, we decided to use them for counting! We laid down a number and asked Roberto to line up as many blocks beside it as required to match the number. The gel numbers were found at our local dollar store as window clings!

Here we are matching up to the number six! Keep cycling through different numbers to build number value recognition.
