    I love this

    Put masking tape in a cross on the floor. Label each section Spring, Summer, Autumn , Winter.Each student comes up to the bag of clothes and with a blind fold must select an item of clothing from the bag. Before removing the blind fold they must feel and discuss the item of clothing and make a prediction of where it should be placed on the seasons section.

    Remove the blind fold to discover if they are correct.

    what a lovely way to bring out their descriptive language (if you ask them to describe what they feel) and to connect their ability to identify materials from touch.

    This would help those children who don’t have a “minds eye” because it is quite concrete. (Aphantasia is thought to affect 1-2% of people – so there are probably a few in your school! https://psyche.co/ideas/i-have-no-minds-eye-let-me-try-to-describe-it-for-you)
