Engage: Begin the lesson by asking the children if they know what a sensory walk is and if they have ever done one before. Explain to them that today they will be doing a sensory walk using flat Tupperware containers.
Explore: Provide the children with a variety of sensory materials such as sand, gravel, rice, and beans. Invite them to explore each material with their senses. Encourage them to touch, smell, and even taste the materials (if appropriate). Ask them to describe how each material feels, smells, and sounds.
Explain: Once the children have had a chance to explore the sensory materials, explain the activity to them. Demonstrate how to use the flat Tupperware containers to create a sensory walk by pouring the materials into the containers. Explain that they will be walking on the containers to experience different textures and sensations.
Elaborate: Have the children take turns walking on the Tupperware containers, exploring the different textures and sensations. Encourage them to walk barefoot or in socks so that they can feel the materials more fully. Ask them to describe how each material feels and to identify their favorite textures.
Evaluate: Once the children have had a chance to explore the sensory walk, ask them to identify which textures they enjoyed the most. Have them discuss how the sensory walk made them feel and how it helped them to learn about different textures. Observe their progress and provide them with positive feedback on their efforts.
