8 The Five SensesThe five senses help us function through out each and every day and each sense has its own important role it plays.Activity:There are 5 sense stations set up in the class room, each with one object laid out.Sight - a picture of a frogTaste - sugar cubesTouch - teddy bearSmell - flowersHear – a bellSeparate class into small groups.One group at a time will go to each sense station and write down as many describing words as they can using their senses for that object. Once the whole class has had a chance to go through each station and take notes, the class will come together and have a class discussion and share their findings.
9 Content standard & grade level: Kindergarten4. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. As a basis for understanding this concept and addressing the content in the other three strands, students should develop their own questions and perform investigations. Students will:a. Observe common objects by using the five senses.b. Describe the properties of common objects.c. Describe the relative position of objects by using one reference (e.g., above or below).d. Compare and sort common objects by one physical attribute (e.g., color, shape, texture, size, weight).e. Communicate observations orally and through drawings.Cali2fo
