Product Description
Explore neuroscience for kids with this exciting collection of 11 hands-on explorations about the sense of touch. Kids in grades 1-5 will get a tactile introduction to why we feel things, nerve endings, and the different types of touch receptors.

Each interactive lesson begins with an intriguing question: Can you tell what something is without looking? What would life be like if you couldn't feel with your fingertips? Your lesson becomes an exploration, fueled by the kids' curiosity.

At the end of each activity, there are more questions that help kids go deeper into what they’ve experienced, and an explanation of “what happened” that will make it easy to explain the science to your kids.

The concepts covered in The Science of Touch include: what nerve endings are and what they do, how we can discover information by touching things, the different types of touch receptors, and how blind people use touch.

The hands-on science activities in this unit are an ideal supplement to your science lesson plans or homeschool science curriculum. They are intended for small group and independent use, and are perfect for centers.

This unit can last from 2-6 weeks, depending on how intensive your science study is.
