Five Senses Fun, Farm Unit Revised, and Five for Friday

Hello Friends,

I thought I would link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. I am having such a wonderful teaching year and you would think that I would be taking photos, photos, photos, but I guess I am having so much fun that when I DO think about getting my camera, it's over! But I WAS able to get a few photos of our Five Senses week....

1.  Here we are testing out our sense of hearing. We talked about how sound moves in waves, so each child took a turn laying on the floor while their classmates hopped around them. They found out that they could HEAR the jumping as well as feel the sound which was really cool!
2. This was another test of sound. We made telephones out of cups. My kiddos SAID that they could hear the other person through the cup, but I am not really sure they did. It DID give them an idea of how a telephone works... :)
3.  We also tested our sense of smell and taste. The children closed their eyes while tasting and smelling and were amazed that they could tell what they were smelling and tasting without seeing it. For taste, they tasted pretzels, gummy bears, and carrots. For smell, they smelled lemon soap, cinnamon, and salad spices.
4.  We also tested our sense of touch by feeling items inside socks. Sadly, I did NOT get photos of that BUT, we had a fun popcorn activity where the kids realized that they used EVERY sense while exploring. They could see it, hear it, touch it, smell it, and taste it! I have a little 5 senses resource in my store that they are working on in this photo.
5.  Finally, I made major revisions in my FARM resource. If you have already purchased it, please re-download. If you are interested in it, click the photo below to take you to my store.

  1. I love the quote in your blog header! It's been a favorite quote of mine for a long time, and I need to remember it whenever I feel myself sliding into a rut. Your senses unit sounds like so much fun. I do similar activities with my third graders during writing as a way to get kids to brainstorm specific adjectives. Happy Friday!

  2. Yes I too have done work on the senses with young children and it always makes me smile when they realise how much they can do with their other senses not just sight! I also know EXACTLY what you mean about taking photos - there just isn't enough time in the day when you're teaching and in the moment to get out the camera and record it all too!!

    1. Five senses are so much fun and you are right, stopping to take photos while you in the moment just does not happen!
