This week we talked about our 5 senses. We learned the song 5 Senses by Dr. Jean.

To conclude our senses unit, I created a Spin-a-Sense game. I made a large chart and listed all of the senses on the chart. The children spin the spinner and must tell me something that uses that sense, but you may not repeat, that is why I write what they say on the chart. :)

The older children 2-5 grades were going to be labeling parts of the eye, ear, nose, and hand. I created a sheet for them to complete each day. We have models of the eye and ear for them to
look at 3-D. Due to limited time - we had Elementastics on Wednesday, we were unable to do this :(

We made riddles instead. The K-1 children looked at a photo and gave three clues. Then decided which sense it should go under. For example, there was a photo of pizza and although we use most of our senses, we decided that tasting would be the best.

The 2-5 graders had to write down their three clues to see if anyone could guess what they were describing.
There are small pieces of tape on the squares to hold the game pieces in place on my pocket chart.

We used this chart to list things that used only, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 senses. I had wanted the children to label which sense they used but I wasn't the one doing the activity :(
