The Cube Solved!
I forgot to put this in the last post. Did you know you can learn to solve the Rubik’s Cube? It was a lot harder than I thought it would be since there are people who can do it in about 10 seconds! But my son and I have learned. It takes persistence, but you can solve it and learn it so that you can do it any time. I had the fun of sitting at a neighbor’s house and playing with their’s as we talked–and handing it back completed.
I think this counts as “thinking school” as we call it. It’s spacial reasoning. You see what is not in its place and how to maneuver the right piece into its place.
Here’s the official How To. (where rubiks.com sends you)
Here’s the video I learned from. (not youtube)
