Kinder students explore their sense of touch.

Kinder students are reaching inside socks to feel different objects using their sense of touch. Each student had to carefully turn the object around in her or his hand, trying to feel its shape, texture, and size. Peeking was not allowed! Look at those faces concentrating. I sure hope there were no cacti or jellyfish hidden inside those socks! (Disclaimer: no children were harmed during this project.)

Then, after guessing what color the object might be, we tried to draw the objects, after only using our sense of touch, not sight!

At the end of class, we took the objects out of the socks to see if we guessed correctly! What a fun art day!
