For years, I have done a similar kind of lesson. However, I enclose the
textures in a black box. I take or make a box and paint it black. I cut a
hole in the end to so you can put your hand inside. I secure flaps around the
hole, so you can't see inside. On the inside of the box, I have papered the
"walls" with textures. The kids have to feel the different surfaces. One time
I filled the box with Barbie doll heads. That was a blast!!! The kids just
squealed with a mixture of delight and horror!!
