The goal of this lesson is to increase your students’ awareness of each of the five senses and how they use them. There is a page and a half of informational text, focusing on the concepts of: 1.) how each sense organ works, presented in a way primary grade students can understand. 2.) how our senses of hearing, sight, smell, touch, and taste allow us to enjoy and to learn about the world. 3) Our senses warn us when danger is near. For the purpose of improving reading comprehension skill, three sets of questions enhance the reading skills of making comparisons, drawing conclusions, solving riddles, and of locating details. There are 15 multiple choice questions in all. Five drawings which show children using their senses help to reinforce the informational text. The fifth page is the answer key. Besides being a tool for reading instruction, this lesson also lends itself to reading in the content areas of science or health class.
