Activities in this area allow the child to refine each of his/her senses

SENSORIAL EXPERIENCE

The sensorial area introduces the child to abstract concepts through hands-on materials.  The child explores size, length, volume, color, sound, and taste.  The materials give meaning to such terms as bigger, lighter, darker, and softer.  Many of the activities come in groups of ten, which is an introduction to our base 10 math systems.  Many of the materials also introduce different geometric concepts.
