Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the sense of touch through interactive experiments and discussion about the role it plays in our daily lives.
I used these challenges throughout my teaching career. The students were excited to do the challenges and this helped them to retain the concepts we discussed in class.
No homework! I will send a copy of the challenges discussed during class to their Outschool account.
1. 2 pencils (sharpened) 2. a partner (parent, sibling, etc. for a couple of challenges) 3. ruler (at least 12" or 30 cm long) 4. 2 identical containers that you can fit your hands in - up to (at least) your wrists (boxes, bowls, paper bags, etc.) 5. 2 identical coins (any type) 6. 2 large paper clips (if you don't have paper clips, you can substitute 2 identical items similar in size to a large paper clip (large bottle cap, etc.)) 7. 2 small paper clips (if you don't have paper clips, you can substitute 2 identical items similar in size to a small paper clip (small legos, etc.)) 8. 2 pieces of paper (8.5x11) 9. 3 plastic cups 10. water (you can go to a sink for this during the challenge)
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
