Vocabulary: touch, our skin...
Thanks to our senses, we communicate and open ourselves to the outside world. We can see, hear, smell, taste, and of course, we can touch things. We're going to study the skin, the organ of TOUCH, which is so important for our health. It breathes and lives.
The surface of an adult's skin is a meter and a half to two square meters, and it weighs between three and five kilograms.
The colour of our skin varies and becomes tanned (or burnt ) in the sun. Our complexion is an indicator of the good health of our skin, and, in fact, of our whole body.
