    Things to talk about when doing this activity:
    Say the word texture- The way a surface feels  or how it may look how it feels. Place objects in child's hand and talk about how it feels( for example: a water bottle may feel both smooth and bumpy, a pillow may feel soft/fuzzy or a toothbrush spiky).

    Geometric shapes:
    Circles, squares, rectangles, triangles etc. - have clear edges one can achieve using tools to create them.
    Most geometric shapes are made by humans. 
     
    Organic shapes:
    Are shapes with a natural look and a flowing and curving appearance.
    Organic shapes and forms are typically irregular or asymmetical.
    Organic shapes are associated with things in the natural world, like plants and animals. 
    Go on a walk inside or outside and take a look at all the different shapes you can see. Talk about the shapes you are observing and distinguish if they are organic or geometric.
