To give the students a chance to put themselves in the place of blind people, and see how they manage without the sense of sight. The students will also review all of the senses and the parts of the body that go with each sense.
Students will understand their five sense and the parts of the body that go with them.
The students will list the five senses, and will explain the parts of the body that go with each sense. The students will be able to use a magnifying glass.
This activity can be used with students for primary grades. The lesson teaches the students about braille by taking away one of their senses, and seeing how people have to deal with their other senses to compensate for the missing sense.
