We have been learning about the 5 senses. With me, they have been looking at our sense of touch. We measured how far our skin would stretch if you laid it out flat. The children were fascinated to see how big an area it would cover! We have been naming parts of our hands and skin and looking closely using magnifying glasses. We have talked about the “receptors ” under our skin that send messages to our brains to help us make sense of what we are touching. Very carefully, we tried using paper clips to help us feel which parts of our bodies were more sensitive to touch. We have tried using just our sense of touch to name hidden objects.
