We know even with our eyes closed whether we are upside down or whether we are holding our head down. Yes, even with our head down, we can see things the right way up. Our sense of position is the reason for that.

Information and ideas:
Use picture as introduction to sense of position: children enjoy such situations like this one at the playground. Children can tell the class and teacher when they become aware of their sense of position, (e.g. when they are on a roller coaster).

Relevant for teaching:
The human body
Structure and function of a sensory organ
Reception of stimuli and processing of information
Senses discover the environment

Grade 1 to 4; Grade 5 to 6; Grade 7 to 9; Grade 10 to 13
