Purpose
  • Preparation for the Understanding of the Relationship between Plane Figures 
Presentation
  • Invite the child to the presentation. 
  • Take out all the yellow square pieces (you can choose which ever color you would like to do this presentation) and place them scattered on the table.
  • Close the box and place the box above the pieces on the table. 
  • Make a pyramid with the squares, largest to smallest. The largest should be placed first, and the smallest squares should be on the very top. Center these pieces. 
  • After you have built the pyramid, scatter the pieces on the table. 
  • Place the largest square on the left-most side of the table. 
  • Then place the next largest square to the right of the first square. 
  • Continue grading the squares, largest to smallest on the table. The largest squares are on the left side and the smallest squares should be on the right side. 
  • Invite the child to do the presentation. 
  • To clean up, open the top of the box. Place the pieces back in the box, largest to smallest aligned on the bottom and right hand side.
