Snack: Cheez-its

Activities: painting with tempera cakes, MAd Mattr, puzzles, Plus Plus, sensory table, sand table, coffee shop, Mr. Potato Heads

Science:  We are switching gears in science and moving on to the 5 senses.  Today we explored sight. We talked about how we use our eyes to examine pattern, shape, color and size.  We can gain a lot of information about things just by looking at them.

We then experimented with spinners to see how patterns change as they move; used mirrors to turn half images into whole images; mixed color panels to make new colors; and finally played a fun version of twister first by calling out the colors and then using our eyes only to see the colors without naming them.

Ask your child what their favorite sight experiment was.  Looking for a fun activity? Charades is another fun game you can play using your sight.
