Mystery Bag

A game of object "Hide & Seek" reinforces social skills and tactile discrimination skills.

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Charlotte Cushman and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

As part of their social development, students can play games with each other that encourage peer interaction and taking turns. This activity has students participating in a group activity while identifying familiar objects and reinforcing fine motor skills. Lessons include English Language Arts, Social Skills, and Orientation and Mobility.

Hints: Encourage students to tell where they put everyday objects; for example, “Sam, I put your radio on top of your desk.” Ask students to find items throughout the day, such as lunch money in their front pocket, hat in the outer section of their backpack, etc.
