Narrowest to Widest
Cut out all the pictures of the candles. Sort and paste them in order from the narrowest to the widest. They should progressively grow in width. This worksheet is a sorting activity designed to help students understand the concept of width. It features images of three candles of varying widths and provides spaces for students to cut out and paste the candles in order from the narrowest to the widest. The worksheet is structured with a clear visual progression from left to right, indicating an increase in width. The task requires students to use their judgment to compare the candles and organize them accordingly.
The worksheet aims to teach students about spatial dimensions, specifically the comparative assessment of the width of objects. It enhances their ability to visually discriminate between sizes and to understand the terminology related to dimensions, such as “narrowest” and “widest.” By actively cutting and sorting the pictures, students engage in a hands-on learning experience that reinforces their understanding of size comparison. This activity also promotes fine motor skills and the concept of sequencing, both important for early development in mathematical and physical understanding.
