01-Jan-1975 PSC. India. Preparation for Understanding. Helping Children to Discover Order in the World Around Them, by Keith Warren (text) and Julia Warren, (drawings), UNICEF 1975, printed by Kumar Printers, New Delhi. Education for development; Child development; Learning; India; Programme support communications 25 pp
The book is based on the idea that before children can understand a thing, they need experience such as sensory perception, seeing, touching, etc, and choosing, sorting, arranging, putting things together. While teaching in school uses only words, these simple games and exercises use ordinary items such as pebbles, sticks, leaves, grains, lentils and other things available to a child in a rural setting. Games are illustrated with simple drawings. The children are taught, for instance, to arrange a handful of pebbles into small, medium and large in three rows, then rearranging the pebbles into one long row from the smallest to the largest; creating patterns with leaves, lentils, sticks; hanging a package from a stick, and noticing that the stick gets heavier to hold if the package is placed farther out.
