Spatial Sense

# Locations

We use the word location to indicate the position or direction of an object.

### Example:

The Lion is on the left side of the car, and the Elephant is on the right side of the car.

Following are some important positions:

1. Inside – Outside
2. Top – Bottom
3. On – Under
4. Above – Below

## Inside – Outside

By observing an object's place, we can easily determine whether the object is inside or outside.

### Example 1:

• In the first picture, the puppy is sitting Inside the kennel.
• In the second picture, the puppy is sitting Outside the kennel.

### Example 2:

• In the first picture, the fruits are inside the basket.
• In the second picture, the fruits are kept outside the basket.

## Top – Bottom

Top: Object at the highest part or point.

Bottom: Object at the lowest part or point.

### Example:

• Trophy is at the Top of the staircase.
• Girl is at the Bottom of the staircase.

## On – Under

On: When an object is at the top of something and touching the surface.
(At the top and in contact with the object)

Under: When the object is at bottom of something and fully covered.
(At the bottom and covered up by that object)

### Example:

• Boy is sitting On the table.
• Cat is sitting Under the table.

## Above – Below

Above: Object at the higher place from the second object and should not be in contact with that object.

Below: Object at the lower place from the second object and should not be in contact with that object.

• Birds are Above the tree.
• Bear is sleeping Below the tree.

## Misconception:

No. We can see that there is a gap between the cat and the chair. So, the cat is not on the chair. Cat is sitting on the wooden block.
