Developing Geometric Thinking through Activities That Begin with Play

Pierre van Hiele 

February 1999, Volume 5, Issue 6, Page 310

Abstract:
For children, geometry begins with play. Rich and stimulating instruction in geometry can be provided through playful activities with mosaics. Activities with mosaics and others using paper folding, drawing, and pattern blocks can enrich children's store of visual structures. They also develop a knowledge of shapes and their properties.
