Squishy and Scratchy Textures January 14, 2014

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 5:14 pm

The spec. needs K/1 class has begun a unit on the 5 senses.  Up first is the sense of touch.

After describing various objects and what they feel like, the students created sandpaper prints.  They colored a sheet of sandpaper, using a lot of elbow grease.  The sandpaper was ironed onto fabric, which melts the crayon onto the fabric.

The second day, students reached into bags and guessed the mystery objects using their sense of touch only.  Turns out guessing cups, keys, coins, paintbrushes, etc.  is easy!  The students created shaving cream prints using shaving cream and liquid watercolors.

The squishy wet texture of the shaving cream was much preferred over the rough sandpaper!!
