Start Making Sense

Bar Code: 1260

Description: This kit enables people to know and react to their surroundings. Our sensory investigations are keys to discovery in science. This kit focuses on one sense at a time so as to strengthen each sense in turn. The students not only use their senses in the activities that follow, they become aware that they are using them to find out about the world around them.
