Spatial proficiencies are vital for everyone, but today's sedentary children often lack a natural way to develop this ability. Using just 18 blocks and a spiral-bound book, Architecto develops spatial and problem-solving skills.
With Architecto, your student translates 2-D into 3-D and as he constructs one of fifty illustrated three-dimensional structures. The book is systematic in its presentation, with multiple levels and escalating complexities.
For each model, the type and number of blocks required are indicated at the bottom of the page. There are six difficulty levels, and as your student progresses, the puzzles gradually require more sophisticated reasoning. Your child will find that the most grueling level requires fairly advanced logical analysis and spatial perception. Thankfully, answers are included.
The scope and sequence of Architecto is phenomenal. Architecto makes sure your children acquire essential skills as he experiments with construction, geometry, logical analysis, perspective, design, and spatial logic.
There are six difficulty levels, and the puzzles gradually require more sophisticated reasoning using fairly advanced logical analysis and spatial perception.
Since challenges increase in difficulty as your student progresses, consider front-loading this course and doing two challenges a week for the first 14 weeks of school. Then dropping back to one challenge a week to finish off the school year.
