2 Long and Short How Far Apart are the Dots? D O B M A J L N G E # # # Guess the distance between any two dots. How many centimetres is it? Now measure it with the help of a scale. Did you guess right? Which two dots do you think are farthest from each other? Check your answer. Which two dots are nearest to each other? Check your answer. Children can play this game in pairs, making dots on a plain sheet and asking their partner to guess the distance. This can also be extended to estimating bigger distances on the floor. The border of this chapter should also be used as a scale. 13 H F I C K
