The name of the activity ‘Magic bag’ brought in a lot of excitement among the Montessori seniors as they waited eagerly to explore the contents hidden in the magic bag. This activity was planned to enhance their stereognostic and olfactory senses to identify objects.
Stereognosis is the ability to perceive and recognize the form of an object by using tactile information like texture, size and temperature. Montessori seniors were blindfolded and made to recognize various fruits and vegetables. This activity had the element of surprise and lot of guess work involved, which the students enjoyed immensely..
