Gate which was used to explain the concept of Area

 

Last week, we used the above gate to explain the children the concept of Area and mensuration in Maths. They were asked to figure out the area of paper that would be required if we have to cover the entire gate except for the door. They were provided with the measurement tools and got excited to see how they could use their simple capacities of Maths to solve a real life problem.

After the group had tried to do the measurement, they were asked to explain the entire problem and the solution to the remaining batch.

Looking at an object with a view to applying one’s knowledge, helps in observing better and also increases the interest in learning that concept.
