My house

My house is a place that calms our minds and soul. The house is where we were born, brought up, and live the rest of our life. In a house, children can relate topics related to concepts like counting numbers, comparing numbers, and geometric shapes. My house for class 1 will help students to identify the shapes in their surroundings.

family. There are different
shapes of doors, windows, and
house roofs.

We can see different objects in our house. Try to make a list and count the number of various objects. In the first column, write the name of the objects. Write the number of objects in the house in the second and third columns, and note the object’s shape. Let’s count the different objects. The list will look like this:

Name of the object Count the objects The shape of the object
Watch 2 Circle
Window 5 Square or Rectangle
Fans 3 Circle
Lamp 2 cylinder
Sofa 3 Rectangle

In this way, we count different objects in our house.

Now try to count different objects in your house and make a list! Measuring and collecting this information is known as data handling.
