When racing teaches us about cardinal and ordinal numbers

Racing is one of the all time favorite sport for kids. We can always find them racing even when they do their work. How interesting and exciting it will be if they learn about numbers through racing. Learners were introduced to ‘Cardinal and Ordinal numbers’  through racing. They ran in groups of 8 to 10. Then at whatever position they reached they were ranked as 1st,  2nd, 3rd and so on. They were asked two questions that were, With how many children did you run? At what position did you reach? Their answers made them understand the use of ordinal and cardinal numbers.
