We keep learning about textures as soon as we enter school. It’s my kiddies third year in school, so I thought of going a little beyond the regular textures we learn about – smooth, hard, rough, soft etc.
First of all, I arranged all the stuff in class so that the kids would brush up on the basics.
All of them felt the texture with their hands – soft feathers, hard stones, rough sand paper, smooth tape, pricky wheat grains etc.
Finally, going a step further, I took the textures activity outside – to the nature.
I had prepared the boards for each kid in advance. Here, the kids would find a thing from the nature and place under it under the texture written on the boards:
It was fun teaching the kids how some leaves were rough, some were smooth. The stones and bricks were hard and flowers were soft. We pasted the stuff on the boards.
