Touch Human senses - touch

Fact file


Some parts of our body are more sensitive than others. Pair up with a friend - make sure their eyes are shut or they are blindfolded. Using a ball point pen, lightly touch the skin on their arm. While still blindfolded, ask them to touch the same point with a different coloured pen. Do the two points match up? Test this on different areas of their body - do your results vary? Why do you think this is?

Test your senses!
