    Abstract

    The ability to draw 3D objects is a part of spatial ability which is a important skill needed in science and daily life. However, current Indonesian elementary mathematics curricula do not provide enough support for the development of students’ spatial ability. The purpose of this study was to design activities to develop students’ ability to draw 3D object. We used design research approach consisted of two cycles. The first cycle was followed by 6 students from class VB and the second cycle was followed by 26 students from class VA at SDN 67 Percontohan Banda Aceh, Indonesia. Data was collected by asking students to draw a representation of 3D objects on a piece of paper followed by short interview with several students. Result of the first cycle shown that 1) there were some revisions made related to some activities and 2) there were 2 out of the 6 students are on level 4; 2 on level 3; and 2 on level 2. Result of the second cycle shown that there were 2 out of the 26 students are on level 4; 7 on level 3; 9 on level 2; and 9 students are on level 1 of drawing 3D objects. We conclude that many students have difficulties in drawing 3D objects. Photo of objects arrangements can support students’ ability to draw 3D objects arrangements. Most of the students’ drawings did not show 3D figure, even 2D figure. This study can serve as crucial data in the effort to support students’ spatial ability. Keywords: spatial ability, 3D objects, visualization, Indonesian curriculum
