PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

People who live in close connection with nature come to realize very soon that their sense of smell is a highly useful tool in survival, work and pleasure. In the city, we are removed from use of sense of smell as we are similarly divorced from many aspects of our senses. The reason for this, speculate some sociologists, is that urban life causes "sensory overload," and that to protect ourselves from overabundance of stimuli, we screen out much that is there.

In this exercise students are taught to take advantage of their sense of smell -- though in the city it can be somewhat of a risky proposition.

As is my custom I have included a Teacher's page with a series of activities and a Student Activity Sheel to help tstudents record information as they go about smelling the city.

The major activity will be in the summary when Students will, orally or in writing, create "aroma portraits" of areas in their city. Each student will present an aroma portrait without actually naming the place or kind of place he or she is trying to describe. Other students will play a guessing game to see if they can identify the place or kind of place.

You should have no trouble matching this less with the CCSS
