Product Description
What a fun way to learn. This activity has 16 ordinary objects and 16 hand prints, all you have to do is figure out which hand/fingers touched which object. Not as easy as you think and loads of fun watching your students use their hands to touch these imaginary object in the classroom. Use as an inquiry activity, introduce the scientific method with lots of laughter, a group collaboration, as a competition and the list goes on.
Combine this activity with some of my other activities…
