Web resource: Arvindgupta Toys from trash for learning
Process (How to do the activity)
- Take a cardboard sheet , draw equal squares 4 of them in a single line and select second square and draw one above and one below , Fold each line and can get cube

- Ask the children to make a list of all activities in different areas of life where measurements play an important role.
- Have a discussion in the classroom regarding importance of measurements and how difficult life would be without measurements.
