Today we started out five sense unit. We are learning about a different sense each day. Our senses are important . They help us learn about the world around us and sometimes sense danger.
In small groups we read a book about touch and we made texture hands. On each hand is a different texture such as smooth, soft or course.
We also went on a ” texture walk” and felt things along the way. We would feel to see if something was hot or cold or rough or smooth or bumpy or sharp.
The interesting thing as we walked the kids began to notice things with their other senses and point them out. Lilly said ” I smell something.” It was rain. Kaden said ” I hear something. ” It was a dog.
Mr Randy also made GAK today. The kids LOVE this stuff.
