Kids are curious to know everything. Here is an activity for children where they will learn that they are a part of much bigger world. They will understand the concept of city, state, country, planet and universe. So are you ready to get creative?!
Now, on the second cardboard piece draw a circle with 2cm diameter bigger than the first.
In the same way, draw on other three cardboard pieces, having 2cm diameter bigger than the last one.
Now, using scissors cut the circles carefully and DO NOT throw the outer part of the cardboard.
Arrange these outer cuttings by sticking the cardboard from which small circle was cut and the bottom and so on till the cardboard from which the bigger circle was cut at the top.
Now, ask your child to stick his/her photo the smallest circle cut-out. On the next bigger circle tell her/him to make the drawing of the society or complex they live in. They could make their house, playground and so on.
On the next circle, help your child to make the map of the state they live in India.
On the next bigger circle, make an outline of world map, and point on the country which you live in. Ask the child, “Which country is this?” Help her/him with the answer.
Finally, on the bigger circle ask the child to make Solar system- Sun and other planets.
Now, say “This is you! Where do you live?”
Tell the child “You live in a complex” and put the circular board on her/his photo.
Say, “Your complex is in Kolkata” and ask your child to put the cut-out on top.
Say, “Kolkata is in which country? It is in _____________?” Point at the map of India and let the child answer.
Say, “India is part of which continent? It is__________?” Point at the map and help your child with the answer.
