Tactile Double Trouble

In this activity (11th activity on the page), learners use their sense of touch to identify matching pairs of objects hidden in bags. Learners can also play this game with partners. One learner holds up the item he or she wants the partner to find in the bag. Learners are challenged to find matching pairs as quickly as possible. Object pairs can be identical like two paper clips or slightly different like different sized marbles.
