1) Introduction
Remind children about our five senses that God gave us. Today we will learn about hands and the sense of touch.


2) Book and Discussion
* Read the book and look at the pictures. The book explains two things about the hands; a detailed look at the parts of a hand and what we use our hands for.
* After reading get the children to do the things that the book explains.
* Ask what favourite things they like to touch and why. How does it feel when they touch?
What do they dislike touching?

 

3) Activities
* Feel objects – Give the children different objects to feel (soft & hard, smooth & rough, wet & dry, hot & cold, stiff & bendy, bumpy & flat, sticky & non-sticky, spongy, rubbery, furry, etc)
* Guess objects – Fill a feely bag with different objects (toy car, lego, spoon, pine cone, small soft toy, feather, balloon, money etc). Children take turns to guess what is inside.
* Draw hand – Children draw around each hand, colour, cut them out and stick them on A4 paper.
* Cut & paste -Cut out pictures of things to feel. Stick them on picture of girl raising her hand
* Sing – “Here we go round the Mulberry Bush” to show the things we do with our hands
– “Incy Wincy Spider”
* Extra story – Beautiful Hands. This story teaches that the most beautiful hands are those that are the most helpful.
