Matching is identification of the same or similar objects according to their common properties. Matching activities could help kids to develop their thinking skills, improve their ability of problem solving. It also lays a solid foundation for mathematical learning. Kids should master the skills of matching by sizes.
This worksheet provides an exercise to practice matching by sizes. It is an attractive activity for kids older than two and half years. It contains a sequence of squares decreasing in size, and also a sequence of circles decreasing in diameter. Parents could cut out the squares and circles, mix them, and fill the rectangles into their original positions. Or you may ask kids to put them into the corresponding outlines in the second page of the worksheet.
This exercise is relatively easy because the size of the figures differ widely from each other. It could educate kids to distinguish differences in size and shape. Kids will end by being able to recognize at a glance the outlines which exactly fit the geometrical figures held in their hand. This exercise also is good for developing kids fine motor skills.
