In Front and Behind Worksheets
You may not even think that these concepts should be found a website that is dedicated to math, but positional geometry is very much math based. The propositions in front of and behind are the first set of positional words that students explore after learning the concepts of above and below. The approaches to teaching them really build upon on another. The best way to approach these topics with students is to start in a hands-on environment with plenty of manipulatives available for them. These worksheets help youngsters learn the spatial concepts of in front of and behind. We encourage you to transition to these sheets after you feel they have a good handle on the concepts for reinforcement.

What Is Meant by Front and Behind?
Working towards better understanding the use of objects, items and materials is very common in mathematics. There is a branch of math called geometry that is dedicated to it. It is not merely mathematics that deals with it; it is every course that has materials and objects in it. When there is so much involved, the hardest part is to figure out the sides of the objects.
In every object, there are two sides to it. One side is front and the other is behind. The front side refers to the exterior part of anything, building, person, or material that is directly facing the point of interest or perception of the viewer. It is the most forward part of an object. This normally is the first thing an observer will see when sensing the object. If it is a movable object, the moving side of the object is normally referred to as the front.
Similarly, behind refers to the part of an object, building or material that serves at the rear view of anything. It can be referred to as the back or rear of the object as well. Being located behind is that part of which is not directly in front of you, it can be any position located to the rear or back of the front.
If we take a look at the school bus found below, the school bus driver is located at the front of the bus. The kids that are locate to his rear are all located behind the driver.
