Five Senses

      We had our Five Senses theme in February.  At the end of the theme, all of our four and five year classes celebrated by having a Five Senses Day.  They rotated classrooms for each one of the senses and had an activity in each class to go along with it.  It was a really fun day!
The Sound Room- They listened to different sounds and then held their paddle to  match the sound that they heard.  The paddles had pictures on them to match to the corresponding sound.

The Smell Room- They had covered containers filled with different smells (garlic, lemon, cinnamon, etc.) that they smelt, and then colored in the appropriate picture to match the smell.

Taste Room-  They had different items of food to taste (dark chocolate, pretzel, lemon, cookie, etc.) and then matched the picture on the tongue.

They also examined their tongues with mirrors.

Touch- They made Feely Caterpillars.  Each circle represented a different type of touch, smooth- aluminum foil, cotton-soft, sandpaper- rough, border- bumpy, and there was one other, but I can't remember! :)

I'm missing the pictures for the sight room!  They looked at objects through magnifying glasses and was able to look at slides under a microscope.  They also made small kaleidoscopes.  It was a lot of work, but it was a wonderful, learning experience!
