Coloured Squares

This activity helps students become familiar with positional words and develop systematic thinking. Students use the clues provided to arrange six colored squares in an array, either on paper or with the interactive Flash applet that is provided. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, ideas for extension and support and a printable sheet (doc). Students may be asked to create a similar problem for others to solve.
