Exploring Senses

Today in the CDLL the children had the opportunity to explore apples that were bought from the Farmers Market last week. Children were able to sort the apples by colors, size, shape, and taste. Children were also exploring the feeling of silly putty made by one of the student teachers. The children wrapped the silly putty around their hands and maneuvered it into different shapes and sizes. The senses are one of the greatest things to explore as a child. They learn how to see, touch, taste, listen, and smell what they are exploring.
