Science Activity - Texture Hunt

Last week for our Sid the Science Kid activity we went on a texture hunt around the house.  We first talked about our skin.  I showed Trevor (and Mackenzie =) how skin is all over out bodies...on our hands, our legs, and even our faces!  We talked about how we are able to feel things with our skin.  Next, I brought out four items from around the house that were examples of different kinds of textures...

smooth-soft-bumpy-'pokey'


The kids took a minute to explore the different items and say how they thought they felt.


We explored how even the skin on different parts of our body could feel textures!


Now it was their turn to find other items around the house that had different textures.


If this activity sounds fun to you and your kids, check out this and other Sid the Science Kid episodes!

Have you done a texture hunt or other fun science activity with your children?  I'd love to hear about it!

Happy Exploring!
