Our Senses: Part 2 - Sight

Maddie and I are learning about our senses this month. This little experiment is a bit of a scavenger hunt and applies to our sense of sight. (Plus it lets us play with technology!)

For set-up, I took close up photos of 12 things throughout our living/dining room.

Here are four images (clockwise from top left: our couch, a wicker chair, a photo bulletin board, our parquet floors.)

Next I gave Maddie my phone so she could try to match the photos up with the item.

You better believe that my sarcophagus cd case made it in this project!

A pillow made with ribbons from our wedding.

Maddie's book basket.

(If you're not a fan of kids using phones/cameras, you could also print photos.)

Maddie loved this game. She only had trouble with one or two pictures. And at the end, she told the cat, "I am so proud of me."

The nice thing about this was that our discussion of what we see also involved a discussion about how things look like they feel. Visual texture can be a bit hard to grasp, but this popped right into the discussion.

I'm working on another project on the senses. Check back for more next week!
