Our Hands

We use our hands a lot. We can clap with our hands. We can pick up things with our hands. We can play catch with our hands.

Human hands are different from the hands or paws of other animals. Human hands have four fingers and a thumb. A thumb helps us pick up things. Try picking up something without your thumb. It is hard to do!

Hands help us write, hold things, and play games. What else do hands help us do?
