The purpose of this pilot study was to discuss a possibility of a tangible learning system for pre-service teacher training. For the purpose of this pilot study, the tangible learning system was implemented and demonstrated in a science teacher training class. Then, comprehension test scores before and after the class and a mental rotation test (MRT) score were compared. 23 college students were divided into three groups based on the pre- and post-comprehension test scores; HH (12 High-High students), LH (7 Low-High students), and LL (4 Low-Low students). According to the ANOVA on the MRT, the LH students received an average score on the post comprehension test, however the LL students scored lower due to their lack of spatial thinking ability. The results of our study imply that the tangible learning system is effective for college students to understand the phases of the Moon. Meanwhile, the results also imply that there are some students who do not have enough spatial thinking ability. These findings stress the importance of taking students' spatial ability into account especially in science teacher training.
