Learning Objectives

Students will be able to make and label a five senses collage.


(5 minutes)
  • Invite the class to gather for the start of the lesson.
  • Ask students to look at the fruit in your hand.
  • Bring the fruit around to students or pass them out for students to share. Say, “Turn and talk with a partner to answer the question: What can we learn about this fruit? How?”
  • Ask the class to think about which of their five senses they just used.
  • Say, “Right! You might have used your sense of smell to smell it. You used your sense of touch to feel the texture. If you tried it you could use your sense of taste. We all used our sense of sight to look at it. What are the other senses you have?”
  • Tell the class that now they will get to learn even more about their senses.
