The suggested experiments can be carried out by up to eight groups of students. They are particularly suitable as an introduction to the sense of touch from a sensory-physiological point of view. These instructions provide notes for linking the experiments to the curriculum and ideas for further study.

The experiment comprises three subexperiments:
• How does skin react to touch?
• How does the skin perceive cold and heat?
• How does the skin distinguish between different temperatures?

Notes:
• Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
