This lesson on the five senses has 3 possible choices 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.
In this compressed folder are files for teaching students about the five senses through frying hoe cakes, a Native American flatbread. There are 2 different versions of the lesson, one in PowerPoint and one in SmartBoard Notebook. 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 a writing lesson about the process.
For the hoe cakes, you would need to bring in a skillet to fry a sample for each student. You will probably want an adult volunteer to assist with the lesson. There are also sample letters to send home to parents asking for ingredients or volunteers.
