Our sense of touch helps us feel things around us. We can feel things with our skin. Different objects feel different. Some are smooth, some are rough, and some are soft. We can use our sense of touch to know how things feel.


Ask the following questions to evaluate the lesson 
1. Can you name objects that are smooth?

2. What about objects that are rough?

3. Try to describe how these objects feel when you touch them.
