Match the items brought by the animals as seen in the above picture. One is done for you.
Teacher’s Note: Teacher can narrate the above story of the King’s Palace for enhancing the mathematical vocabulary such as cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone and sphere.
The following objects are in the shape of cube.
The following objects are in the shape of cuboid.
1. Identify the cube and cuboid shaped objects and write ‘A’ for cube and ‘B’ for cuboid inside the box given below.
2. Colour the cube shape red and cuboid shape green.
The following objects are in the shape of cylinder.
The following objects are in the shape of cone.
The following objects are in the shape of sphere.
Identify the cylinder, cone and sphere shaped objects and write ‘1’ for cylinder,‛2’ for cone and ‘3’ for sphere.
Match the objects with their shapes and names of the shapes. One is done for you.
The names of the objects are given in the boxes. Observe the shapes of the given objects. Write them in the empty squares matching each object. (SPHERE, CONE, CUBE, CYLINDER, CUBOID)
Help your toy friends to reach their houses.
Teacher’s Note: Teacher can encourage students to draw the path for the toy children to reach their houses. They need to collect their identical shapes on their way. Example cube, cylinder, sphere, cone, cuboid.
