New! Sense of Smell
2nd - 4th
Students complete activities that help activate their sense of smell. In this sense of smell lesson plan, students paint with scratch and sniff paint, use a blindfold and smell items, and have a discussion.
Youngsters explore their sense of smell by working in pairs. One child is blindfolded, while the other holds things for him to smell. They switch after a while. All of this leads up to learning about the amazing ability sharks have to smell - even from very far away. A study of sharks, and their prey, ensues. Terrific worksheets and activities are embedded in this fine science plan for the little ones.
