Learning about our Five Senses in Kindergarten

Our Kindergarten scientist are learning....
We are beginning to explore the human body! First we are taking a closer look at the important parts of our body, what it looks like on the outside, and exploring our 5 senses. We are learning to make connections about how our senses help us learn more about our world.

Here are a few activities we have been using to explore this topic.

Mr Potato Head 5 senses game.
After you spin the spinner, you find the part of the that uses either sight, smell, taste, touch, or hearing.

We use our  nose to smell. We have a few containers with different object for students to smell and guess what it is. Is it cinnamon? Onion? Dill? Garlic? Or Vanilla? 

We used our sense of hearing to match the sounds of different mystery eggs.

We used our sense of sight to play I Spy, our sense of touch to come up with adjectives to describe objects in a blind bag, and our sense of taste to sense the difference between popcorn and apples.

We look forward to continue this investigation into the human body!
