Product Description
Usher Spring into any season- with this sensory rich 8-lesson-unit, "Are Your Five Senses – Healthy or Harmful?"


In multiple brain based tools and student-generated tasks, you will discover and engage multiple intelligences. Find bare boned strategies for organizing and teaching an entire unit of eight lessons about the human senses.

All without lecturing even once, observe students locate research through locations suggested, and created tasks they love to complete, from your rubric criteria.

Each lesson will emphasize a different intelligence, and these will vary based on student and faculty preferences. Learners will use their unique strengths and interests as tools to both explore the concepts and express their understanding in evident takeaways.

Emphasis is on connecting facts from course content, to learner interests and abilities. Students apply content to create useful tools to build healthy habits and teach others to do the same.

For each lesson students will be required to demonstrate their understanding of two specific targets, they explored and illustrated using their unit overview chart which is included.

First, they will consider lecture notes (posted online or handed out as cheat sheets). Small groups will read and discuss text chapters, as cheat sheets for content they will apply through task card creations.

Find guides to organize each of eight lessons around a related theme, a two-footed question, and 2 key targets that require students’ active participation.

Included are eight distinct lesson themes, questions and targets on the topic of healthy or harmful senses.

Common Core Standards Addressed in this Unit Include:
