The Tongue...A Sense of Taste
Students explore the sense of taste. For this biology lesson plan, students consider 4 types of tastes, recognize the papillae or receptors on the tongue, and locate and label the different taste sense organs on the tongue.
The Tongue...A Sense of Taste
First graders identify the four taste sensations: salty, sweet, sour and bitter. They recognize the papillae or receptors on the tongue and locate and label the different taste sense organs on the tongue.
Lesson: Sensing a Different Way
Problem solving and creative thinking are top priority in an interesting lesson. Learners explore how they can think creatively to use four common objects in three different ways, they discuss senses and using senses differently to experience things. A full class discussion on the creative thinking process finishes off the lesson.
My Five Senses
Learners explore their 5 senses. In this 5 senses lesson, students participate in activities that require them to use the senses of smell, touch, hearing, taste, and sight.
My Five Senses
Students explore their five senses. They watch, smell and listen as the teacher pops the popcorn. They talk about how popcorn looks like blossoms on blooming apricot trees. They name and point to the parts of their body that help them do things.
Scents And Sense-Abilities
Students explore how the five human senses function. They work in small groups, each group focusing on a specific sense. Each group then creates a 'Sensing the World' poster which combines all of the information gained through in-class research.
Students collect data to be used in selecting the class favorite taste. They predict which among the common flavors such as salty, sweet, sour, or bitter is preferred.
Coming To Our Senses
Students participate in a hands-on experiment that illustrates how taste and smell are related. They create their own experiments to help them explore all five senses and the relationships between them.
Students use comparisons, graphing, patterning, and sorting, and develop language skills as they explore the five senses.
Studying our Senses
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!
Your Five Senses
Students identify the five senses. In this biology lesson plan, students participate in an experiment and use their five senses to identify various substances.
My Senses Tell Me...
Learners explore how to use their sense to draw conclusions. In this human biology lesson, students use their senses to observe various objects in learning centers. The centers include tasting salt, touching sandpaper, hearing bells and smelling oranges. A student worksheet is included.
The Five Senses
Students recognize how each of the five senses works and define the related terminology. They compare and contrast the means by which the senses gather information about the world. In addition, they research how an assigned sense works and will create a labeled picture that illustrates this process.
Students identify the five senses. For this senses lesson, students listen to a story about the five senses and discuss what each sense is. Students explore the five sense with popcorn. Students also practice the letter S, the number 5, ovals, and the color brown.
Writing with our Senses
Fifth graders apply their knowledge of the five senses to create descriptive writing pieces. In this descriptive writing instructional activity, 5th graders observe as the teacher models how she adds in details and adjectives into her existing piece of writing. Students then go to work on adding details and adjectives into their writing.
Young scholars consider the difficulties of adapting to the loss of different senses. They work in small groups, each developing a fictional superhero who experiences a loss of one of sense and must compensate for it with his or her other senses.
Students taste sugar, lemon, salt, and tonic water, and identify which areas of their tongue tastes different tastes. In this taste lesson plan, students then create a tongue map.
How Animals Use Their Senses to Find Food
Students plan a scavenger hunt for food and provide classmates with clues. In this animal adaptation lesson, students view videos showing how various animal species find food. They create a scavenger hunt for their classmates that uses the senses and clues to find food.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
In this online interactive reading comprehension worksheet, students respond to 15 multiple choice questions based on Sense and Sensibility. Students may submit their answers to be scored.
Five Senses Lesson Plan
Students listen to The Brave Little Monster, by Ken Baker. In this five senses lesson, students identify the different senses that characters experience in the book they are listening to. They review the senses as a class with hands on materials prior to the story being read. This lesson includes a worksheet for the activity.
