5 Senses

Before break we wrapped up our unit on the 5 Senses, students learned to explore the world around them with heightened awareness.

The younger levels learned some of the basic anatomy of the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin.  We explored our sense of touch with a grab bag and a blindfold and sense of smell by painting with spices.

The older levels dove deeper and began to understand how and why our bodies are able to receive information.  We isolated our sense of smell to see how it worked without the aide of other senses and played with optical illusions.  

We build off of what we learned about the eyes and ears to deepen our understanding of light and sound in the next unit!
