Maths Mela | Class 3
Can there be a way to take the table inside the door if both the length
and the breadth are more than the width of the door?
We can use
measure the
length of the
table.
I guess it
will not pass
through!
Yes, it is
longer than
the door.
I measured
the length of
this side of the
table.
The table can pass
through the door
this way.
Teacher’s Note: Comparing two lengths is not always possible by
bringing them next to each other like in the above example of the table
and 	the	 door.	This 	 exercise	 should	help	students 	to	figure 	 out	 that	one
can measure indirectly using a common unit.
Can you name some things that cannot pass through your school
gate? Discuss.
Make a bridge using boxes or bags or
any other objects available in your class.
Place or arrange the boxes so that the
bridge does not move. Take some objects
from your class and guess if the objects
can go through the bridge.
