These "bookmark" type strips help students locate descriptions in a text. So many times students focus on what something looks like but this will force them to "dig a little deeper." As students read a text, they complete the 5 Senses Chart looking for how things feel, smell, taste, sound and look. It's not always possible to complete all 5 squares depending on text.
There are three 5 Senses Charts per page. Teachers may either give to 3 separate students OR assign 1 chart per chapter / short story for an individual student.
This activity may be assigned as a small group, partner or individual activity.
