Sack for one item


First, you will gather some small items that children can recognize. For example, you can use a pencil, pen, eraser, chalk, chalk eraser, marker, different coins, and other small items.

Then, you will place them in a box so you can have them ready for the exercise.

When you are ready to start, you will have the students gather around a table. You will place the items on the table and go over each item with the students.

Then, you will place one item in the sack and have a student reach into the sack without looking and feel the item. You will have them guess what the item is by the feel of it.

You can use a different item for each student.


You can reward them for guessing the object.
