What is a Monument?
A Monument is a Structure or Statute built to commemorate a person or an event. Examples of monuments include Historical Buildings, Archeological sites, Memorials, Temples, Churches, Tombs, etc.
Monuments are the treasure and Pride of any county. Do you know how many monuments India has?

For example, here are some simple facts about the Taj Mahal.
Read on to learn are a few more ways to make different learning material for your child with our printable.
1. Montessori 3 Part cards
You can also make 3-part cards by Printing the set twice and making an additional Image card and text card.
2. Mini booklet
Make a flipbook of Indian monuments. Place the cover page on top and Staple them all together or use a Binder ring to make a Cute little “Monuments of India Flipbook.”
3. Find the other half
Most of the Indian Monuments are Symmetrical, and it would be perfect for doing this fun activity. Cut the Image cards in half. So the child finds the other half and completes the picture.
If your child can solve it easily, then cut each image into 4 pieces. We, too, did this activity, and my child loved it.
4. Velcro matching activity
Another idea for toddlers is Velcro matching activity. Print 2 Sets, Laminate them, cut out images on one set and add velcro. The child will have fun matching visually similar images.
