I’m not sure you have to be able to visualize and manipulate objects mentally, as several people stated, to have spatial reasoning abilities. This comes from a person who can’t visualize. None-the-less, I can analyze spatial relationships well and that works for me. As applied to students, sometimes we need to approach how they learn differently from us and accept it as another way to solve problems. This may even give us a tool to teach it differently to students who aren’t “getting it.
