Five Senses

We are working on the five senses right now in science. I love teaching this topic because there are so many fun, hands-on activities you can do with it.

For taste, we had a taste-testing party. We focused on three flavors (sweet, sour, salty). I loved the faces they made when trying the limes.

For touch, we passed around socks with hidden objects inside. The students drew a picture of what they thought was inside the sock. They were so excited when I revealed the object and they had it right.

I found some great resources and ideas online from Little Giraffes and a free mini-unit from Mrs. Wills Kindergarten.

I would love to hear what your favorite activities are for teaching the five senses!
