6 Footprints Bholu and the Footprints One day some baby animals were playing on a muddy road in a jungle. All of a sudden an elephant shouted – Run! Run! Go to your homes. Bholu is coming to shoot with his camera. So, all the baby animals ran away. When Bholu came with his camera, all he saw was the footprints of these animals. Can you match the animals with their footprints?✤ ✤Draw the footprints of a dog in this box. ✤Make the footprint of your friend on the floor. Is it smaller than yours?

Her mother is reading a newspaper. Tamanna and her mother are sitting on the opposite sides of a table. Draw the missing things in the picture. Children may use different perspectives to draw. For instance, some will try to show the table from the top but might show all its legs too, while some might make only two legs. Leave it to them to draw the shapes as they visualise them. Teachers could use different drawings to discuss about shapes and also how they look different from different sides. More Fun with Tracing ✤Collect some things, such as — a potato, a bottle cap, a matchbox cover, a sharpener, an eraser, a spoon, a bus ticket, a coin, a straw. You can also bring other things. ✤Trace each of these. Ask your friends to guess. ✤Look at the shape of each trace you have made. See if it looks like any of the shapes given here. Write the name of the thing below the shape. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Help children look at the differences and similarities in the shapes which have come up after tracing. What is similar in the shapes — for instance, between a box and an eraser? These have been placed in the same column. Encourage children to name as many shapes as they can. We need to help the usage of words such as circle, square, rectangle, etc., so that these become a part of the child's vocabulary. Tarani's Shapes Tarani made a picture using different shapes.
