MyPlate, vitamine requirements and sensory changes in the elderly are discussed. Note: The lesson would be great for 12th graders thinking about working as a CNA.
Who would not want an opportunity to taste jellybeans in class? During this investigation, life science learners hold their noses as they take a taste test and find that our perception of flavor is connected with our sense of smell. In an additional activity, they examine drawings that pose optical illusions and discover that perceptions can vary. The drawings are of poor quality; you can find identical, but clearer images online to use for the lesson. Then get your upper elementary schoolers investigating the senses!
Learners demonstrate the importance of using all five senses. For this senses lesson, students read the story, My Five Senses, and discuss how the character used his senses in the story. Learners try to identify computer-generated sounds by only using their sense of hearing.
