WHAT CAN OUR
SENSE OF TOUCH TELL US?
Our sense of touch can tell us many things about the world. Let's make a list of the different things we can learn by touching, handling, feeling, and manipulating (say "man-IPP- you-late-ing") items with our hands.
(1) We can
tell how big it is, unless it is the size of an elephant!; (2) We can

rough or smooth, light or
We have some
feely boxes, and, just in case, we have blindfolds also. Sometimes it
is difficult for us to tell one or more of our senses not to work, because

There is nothing inside the boxes that can hurt you or frighten you. It is not a good idea to put your hand inside of something you can't see, such as a hole in a tree, because there may be a nest of bees that would sting, or a little animal that would bite. Always look before putting your hands into something.
It's okay to put your hand inside a feely box at home or at school.
Box No. 1 has some things in it that you can handle, and feeling them can help you know what kind of things they are. Write down what you think the stuff is, and why you think so.
Once you know what those things are, you can ask for one piece of the same stuff, and, by touch only, find its partner in the feely box. Write down what quality it is that causes the two items to be partners.
Box No. 2 has some certain shapes of pieces of wood inside. You must feel them, and by feeling only, find two partners. Why are they partners? How can you tell?
