The lesson on the five senses is available with 3 possible options to purchase. You can teach children about the 5 senses by having them make hoe cakes (a Native American flatbread); gingerbread people, or gingerbread houses. They will sample the ingredients or the finished products and describe the effects on their 5 senses.
This lesson teaches students about the five senses by having them sample the ingredients used as they make gingerbread houses. In the compressed folder are PowerPoint or SmartBoard Notebook presentations for a very easy version that is made by frosting milk cartons. There is an alternative version using graham crackers so the entire house is edible. In each you will present the lesson and have students use their five senses to evaluate the food they will see, smell, feel, hear, touch, and taste. After participating in the lesson and sampling the food prepared, they will do writing lessons about the process. There are 3 different versions of writing lessons.
You will probably want at least one adult volunteer to assist with the lesson. I also have directions for each construction method and sample letters in each folder to send home to parents asking for ingredients or volunteers.
