Spatial Sense

Locations

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

Example:

G1_1_Location_Left-right

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:

G1_2a_Location_Inside-Outside
G1_2a_Location_Inside-Outside
  • In the first picture, the puppy is sitting Inside the kennel.
  • In the second picture, the puppy is sitting Outside the kennel.

Example 2:

G1_3_Location_Inside-Outside
  • 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:

G1_4_Location_Top-Bottom
  • 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:

G1_5_Location_On-under
  • 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 contactwith that object.

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

G1_6_Location_Above-Below
  • Birds are Above the tree.
  • Bear is sleeping Below the tree.

Misconception:

G1_7_Location_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.
