We explored our five senses in preschool: sight

A neat way for your students to explore the wonderful world of color!

This past week the children explored their sense of touchtastesmellsight, and hearing. Let me show you what the children found in the “sense of sight” discovery center…

Exploring Color

The children used their sense of sight to look through these DIY colorful toilet roll lenses.

Exploring their World

The children looked at each other, out the window, and throughout their classroom.

Making new Discoveries

I invited the children to put two lenses together to see if the color changed at all, but they were unable to see any kind of change. I am not so sure they understood what I was trying to get them to notice 🙂

A Helpful Hint

We put these lenses together with a rubber band which the kids could easily remove and so I did have to make quite a few lens repairs along the way! I think next time, I would use colored tape to keep the lens covers on instead of a rubber band.

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
