PAR 55 uses attribute logic blocks to develop students’ multiple classification as well as logical and computational reasoning.
This game uses attribute logic blocks to develop students’ multiple classification as well as logical and computational reasoning skills. The gameboard is comprised of connected pentagon bases upon which students place attribute blocks that are connected to other blocks. Whenever a “placed block” is connected to an occupied base, points are scored based on four attributes: shape, color, size, and thickness. The networking of gameboard bases, the potential for a “placed block” to be connected to multiple bases, and bump rules create a critical thinking game that challenges a broad grade and ability range. UNDERLYING MATHEMATICS/SCIENCE: computational reasoning involving addition, equality, inequality; logical/scientific reasoning involving multiple classification, attribute analysis, observation skills, hypothesizing and experimentation, inductive and deductive reasoning, combinatorics; spatial/geometric reasoning involving similarity, shape recognition, directionality, structural analysis of space, networks; and active problem solving
