Children pick up many words in their daily interaction that help them describe how objects relate to each other in terms of space and distance. As they grow, early spatial concepts such as front/behind, up/down, far/near, in/ on, over/under etc. allow children to elucidate directions more precisely, express their thoughts and ideas to others, and also fosters reasoning.
To expose them to spatial reasoning, the concept of ‘Far and Near’ was introduced through various games and activities. Interesting set ups were prepared where in they pasted different objects near and far to a particular spot.
The activity was truly exciting as it not only allowed them to understand the concepts in an interesting way, but also built their vocabulary skills by introducing them new words such as far, near, close, run etc.
