Sheets, Kent-Kohs Blocks


In her efforts to design useful clinical tests for children, psychologist Grace Helen Kent (1875-1973) introduced this modification of a set of blocks originally proposed by another psychologist, Samuel C. Kohs (1890-1984). These materials include twelve pencil drawings of arrangements of cubes for the Kent-Kohs blocks, as well as thirteen color drawings of patterns to be produced with them.

For an example of the Kent-Kohs blocks and further details, see MA.316372.04.
