SHAPES & SPATIAL UNDERSTANDING 3-D and 2-D Shapes • Observes objects in the environment and gets a qualitative feel for their geometrical attributes. • Identifies the basic 3-D shapes such as cuboid, cylinder, cone, sphere by their names. • Traces the 2-D outlines of 3-D objects. • Observes and identifies these 2-D shapes. • Identifies 2-D shapes viz., rectangle, square, triangle, circle by their names. • Describes intuitively the properties of these 2-D shapes. • Identifies and makes straight lines by folding, straight edged objects, stretched strings and draws free hand and with a ruler. • Draws horizontal, vertical and slant lines (free hand). • Distinguishes between straight and curved lines. • Identifies objects by observing their shadows.
LENGTH • Measures lengths & distances along short & long paths using uniform (non-standard) units, extends to longer lengths.
