We were asked to fold the paper into four equal parts. Well that was easy I thought.. Next, we have to compare the parts to see if it was equal.. WHAT..???? Hahaha!! And so we did and there was so much commotion on which piece was bigger or smaller than the other..
This is another activity that children as young as four can try. They can be given shapes to match and see how many of a certain shape forms another shape. This helps children to build up their visual spatial and logical mathematical skills! By doing it, children can get to explore where each piece should go and how well it fits.
And than I start to realise slowly, that Maths wasn't all about numbers.. That it can get a tiny weeny bit of fun too.. :)
