Students in Mrs. Shumny’s first grade class recently spent some time studying the five senses. To get an idea of the importance of eyes, the students did an experiment that challenged them to see things differently.
Each student tested how well they were able to catch a ball with both eyes and then with just one eye. Students also learned how a blind person is able to read. They first learned about the Braille System. Then they practiced writing their name in Braille. At the end of class the students had a little better understanding of the importance of sight as one of the five senses that we use every day.
