Triangle is the strongest shape a structure can have to build a bridge. It is the strongest shape because any added force is evenly spread through all three sides.
Squares or cubes also can be strengthened by adding a diagonal pieces across the middle making it two triangles linked together. Here then i thought kids on a simple illustration activities of the strongest shape and show them.
Then to make it more interesting, we make a build game contest to compete whose tower the strongest.
To construct the towers, we used colourful popsicle sticks which you can buy at Mr DIY and use cellophane tape to sticks them together. We avoid using glue because it would be messy and more time needed to let it dry.
The strongest tower could withstand more books and should be the winner.
After completion, we tested the robustness of each tower by putting slowly books on top of it.
Last year (2018) school holiday, I asked my both kids to read Bahasa Malaysia books on Islamic historical due to this main reasons;
to improve Bahasa Malaysia vocabulary and;
learn writing essay in Bahasa Malaysia the right way
At first kids didn’t show any interest and reluctant to read it. I still encourage them to read by making sure at first they summarise to me pages they read. But after few times reading it, they become excited to read more other books – related to Islamic heroes.
Lucky i have those collection at home so they can picked from there.
Then from there I proceed for them to summarise whatever they have read at Google Sheet created and shared to me for easy review. Hope this is some of encouragement and support system for them to improve their BM vocab whilst learning the good values in Islam.
“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.
