Lately we have been talking to the children about our different senses. We talked about all the different parts of our faces during circle. The anatomy of our faces was woven into doing clay self portraits as well as talking about the different senses.
How do we recognize our friends and family? The children knew they could recognize anyone by sight, what about hearing? We found out that even when they were blindfolded they could easily tell which teacher was talking and where they were sitting in the room!
What if you didn’t use your sight or hearing? What about touch?
The children were very eager to put on the blindfold and use their sense of touch to recognize their friends. We decided to narrow it down a bit by telling the blindfolded child which two friends were in front of them. Then using their touch, they would guess which person was which!
