Year 4.4 Science Five senses
We have five senses they are the sense of touch, taste, hearing, seeing and smelling.
Touch is the sense we use to feel things. Thus we can tell if something is hot or cold, soft or harsh, wet or dry. This sense is useful and helps protect us from injuring ourselves. It also helps us to appreciate the things around us. I love caressing my soft pets and feeling my cozy soft blanket at night
We taste food thus we can realize if it is sweet, sour or bitter. We can tell if food is savory or sweet. Spaghetti with meatballs is savory whereas strawberries are a sweet fruit.
We hear music and the beautiful sounds of nature. The birds in the trees and the howling of the wind or the patter of rain on a stormy day.
Sight is the sense of seeing. It helps us to enjoy the beauty of nature, a rainbow after a storm, butterflies and flowers. We use our sight to read and write and to discover interesting things. We can also see TV and relax after a hard day of studying. We also use our eyes to cross the road and keep safe.
We smell through our noses and depending on whether the smell is pleasant or not we decide what we like. We can smell the flowers in spring and the fragrance of perfume. We smell our food and if it smells delicious we enjoy it more. But the smell I like most is that of hot chocolate. The sense of smell can also protect us. If we smell smoke or other bad smells we can move away to safety.
