I use this packet to teach my Pre-K students how to be scientists and how to learn about the world around them– by using our 5 senses! Encourage your little ones to use their senses: see, hear, taste, touch, smell with this fun-filled packet. Packet contents:
-The 5 Senses student worksheet – use this to introduce the 5 senses. Cut and paste pictures of children using their 5 senses.
-Mystery Smells activity – materials: baggies, cottonballs, extracts: mint, strawberry, orange, coconut. Cut and paste data recording sheet provided.
-Touch activity – materials: 8 items from your classroom: 2 smooth, 2 rough, 2 soft, 2 mushy (suggestions included), sorting mat provided and follow up student worksheet
-Mystery Sound Boxes activity – turn ordinary tissue boxes into mystery sound boxes using the patterns provided! Fill with rice, coins, paper clips, pasta – student worksheet provided
-Seeing activity – 20 cards to laminate for a matching activity- all images are provided large and small, if you can- use a magnifier to view the small images. If you do not have magnifiers in your classroom, the images can still be seen with the naked eye. Do-it-yourself magnifier suggestions included. Optical illusion follow-up student worksheet provided.
-Taste activity – I do not let my students eat in science lab! This is a sorting activity – no real tasting involved, no purchasing of food!! Sort the 6 cards into 2 columns: sweet, sour. Follow-up student worksheet provided.
