Explore our Five Senses
Our five senses lessons focus on exploring how we process and understand the world around us through our senses of smell, hearing, touch, sight, and taste. The fun, hands-on activities are tactile, exploratory, and sensorial. When we understand the function of each of our five senses it helps process and categorize our daily experiences.
