Tactile Science

I found this great idea at Mrs Bainbridge’s Oasis and immediately printed it off for R. I set it up at his table and let him explore the materials.
We talked about the feeling of each item:
  • Cotton wool ball – soft
  • Sticky tape – sticky (before) and smooth (after)
  • Sandpaper – rough
  • Pasta – hard
  • Dried beans – bumpy
Once R had explored each item, I said the name on each finger and he stuck the item on the right finger. Simple, educational and hands-on. Love it!!
