“Incredible work! Thank you so much for sharing!”

Each of the five senses feature a suggested sequence of activities AND a range of supporting activities for further exploration.

For example, when exploring the sense of touch, your little learners will go on a sensory treasure hunt around the room. They will use a graphic organiser to record objects that are hard, soft, bumpy, smooth and rough. They might then use a salt tray to trace letters with their fingers or experiment with different textures like ooblek and cloud dough during their play!

After completing this unit, you will have addressed the first part of the foundation Year Biological Sciences strand of the Australian Curriculum! There is so much packed into this unit – I just know your little learners will love exploring the senses with discovery bottles, sensory frames, sensory jars and so much more!

While I design my resources with Australian students in mind, I also include alternative spelling for American students too.
