Measurement

Big-Small

We use the words big, and small to express the sizes of objects.

Examples:

G1_1_Big-small_Big-small

Look at the bottles in the given picture. Here, the yellow bottle is small and the blue bottle is big.

  • By observing the size of an object, we can say it is big or small.
  • We do not use the words big or small for comparing the sizes of objects.
  • We cannot say the yellow bottle is small than the blue bottle in the above example.
  • For comparing the sizes, we use the words; bigger, smaller, biggest, smallest.

Bigger - Smaller

‘Bigger or Smaller’ is used when we compare two objects based on their sizes.

Examples:

G1_2_Big-small_Lion-Rabbit

In the given picture, the lion is bigger than the rabbit. The rabbit is smaller than the lion.


Biggest - Smallest

‘Biggest and Smallest’ is used when we compare three or more based on their size.

Examples:

G1_3_Big-small_Bags

In the given picture, the green bag is the biggest and the pink bag is the smallest among all the given bags.

Misconception

G1_4_Big-small_Misconception

In the given picture, the boy thinks that the dog is bigger than the house. Is it true? No. Why the house is looking smaller than the dog? Think about it.

The house is far away from the boy and the dog is near to him. So, the house is looking smaller than the dog.

Sometimes, to compare objects, they must be at equal distance from us.
