The Cell Transport Worksheet helps the student to determine the best place to sit in a crowd. Also called the Rubik’s Cube or a ‘Big Wheel’, this worksheet is a fun and easy way to make the most of studying in a crowded classroom. A quick diagram that shows three positions for a person to sit in a classroom (a good place to keep all the students straight when they are trying to memorize facts or do group work) can help a student determine the best spot to study. This worksheet also includes a variation of the Big Wheel in which the wheel can spin in any direction so that a person can sit in any part of the classroom.
The Cell Transport Worksheet also includes a variation of the cube that is smaller than the normal one. In this variation, the wheel turns in a clockwise direction to allow the student to sit in any part of the room. While this worksheet can be used in the classroom as well as in a classroom environment, students may prefer to use it in the classroom.
With a Cube Transport worksheet, the student can move from one position to another by rolling the wheel of the cube in a counterclockwise direction, or clockwise direction, to get from one side of the room to the other. When the cube is tilted in one of the directions, it will fall into one of the designated locations. The only problem with this worksheet is that the students need to remember where they are moving to since they can’t just point at the direction they want to go.
Another version of the Cube Transport worksheet shows where students should sit when sitting on the cube itself. This worksheet uses the same base as the cube worksheet but uses a grid of squares to locate the spots where the cube should be. Of course, the student can move the cube around this grid, but the person sitting at the very bottom of the cube cannot move the cube around in that particular position. By using a cube worksheet, the students can keep the cube in one place while still remembering where they should be.
The Cube Transport worksheet can be printed out and taped to the wall or placed on the floor of the classroom. Sometimes the students will use a chalkboard for the class so that they can write down notes and study while the teacher is distracted. Some teachers will use the cube worksheet on the chalkboard itself so that it can be referenced easily.
When students sit in the Cube Transport worksheet, they are doing the same thing as when they were trying to learn to ride a bike: they are being trained to balance themselves and the objects around them. Since most people sit on the floor, the most common objects a student will balance himself with are the letters A through Z. It helps to use the letters just like they are part of the body; for example, if the student can only see letters A and B, he or she should try to look at the letter B as though it were part of the body. After a few tries, the student will know how to keep the letters balanced in his or her bodies and their surroundings.
Students have lots of fun learning to balance themselves in the Cube Transport worksheet. Not only will they learn to keep themselves balanced, but they will learn about numbers, geometry, space, and more. If they are doing well, their parents will be quite proud of them.
It is possible to buy a set of Cube Transport worksheets for students to use in the classroom. For parents who want to avoid purchasing these materials, they can choose to buy the worksheet directly from the manufacturer instead.
