It’s Gooey and Slimy in Year 1 Science


Year 1 use their senses to learn about the sense of touch.

It’s gooey and it’s slimy and all together ooky in Year 1 as the children explore their senses. With their hands and feet in all sorts of different substances, they had to explain what they felt.

First, they had to feel things in class with their hands, elbows, foreheads, faces and legs. Then they went outside to see if they could identify different things by using their feet. The children used some spare masks as blindfolds and then felt the materials with their feet and guessed what they were. The children had to describe what they could feel by using adjectives such as hard, soft, rough, smooth, cold, warm, slimy, etc. It was lots of messy fun learning for all!
