Here are some printables you can use to teach taste and smell with your Five Senses Unit. Fill baby food jars with jello mix and tape the labels to each. Poke a few holes on top to make it easy for students to use. Print out the "Sense of Smell" sheet. have them use a q-tip to paint glue on each food item and then sprinkle on the appropriate smell. They loved this.
As for the "Sense of Taste" activity, give each student one Skittle, one Pretzel, and one Sour Gummy Worm to eat. Have them describe which was salty , sweet, and sour before completing the activitiy.
The food labels can be cut into strips and given to each child to make a "My Favorite Food" collage.
There is a self-created songboard I made that you can purchase separately to accompany the song "Five Senses" on the Kiss Your Brain CD from Dr. Jean. This is a great CD for Primary Students and a must have for any teacher.
Song Boards are a great visual aid for ELL learners and increases all students' success of learning by combining auditory, visual, and kinesthetic modalities!
To use the song board, just print, laminate, and cut apart each board for your students. Let students point to the pictures as they sing along with the song.
