As children explore sensory materials they develop their sense of touch, which lays the foundations for learning other skills, such as identifying objects by touch, and using fine motor muscles. Discovering and differentiating different characteristics (warm/cold, rough/smooth, hard/soft etc.) is a first step in classification or sorting - an important part of a child's science learning and discovery.
