What does Full Sensory mean?
Picking things up and feeling their texture is what people often associate with sensory experiences, but it’s about much more than touch!
Sensory learning includes any activity that stimulates a person’s senses of touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing, as well as anything which engages movement and balance.
While we won’t be working will ALL the senses, the Discover Through Time Exhibit will activate an experience around sound, sight, touch, play, and movement!
The Benefits of a Full Sensory Exhibit
Sensory activities, in addition to being fun and interesting encourage children:
- To explore and investigate.
- To use the ‘scientific method’ of observation, hypothesis formulation, experimentation and coming to a supported conclusion.
- To create stronger connections to sensory information and learn which are useful and which can be filtered out in their brains.
