Before class, collect many different-textured items, such as
corduroy, burlap, wool, silk, fake fur, sandpaper, waxed paper,
pieces of bark, small pebbles, and cotton. Cut these textured items

as clothing, scarves, paper items, and stuffed animals.

on the board. Talk about how the object feels (soft, furry, rough)
and thank God for making that object. Then encourage children to
make another match and continue the process.
