My Five Senses Unit Plan 1:


Instructional Group Size: 5

Subject/Activity: Science, Social/Emotional, and Literacy


Essential Questions: How many ears (eyes, hands…) do you have?
What do you touch/feel (taste, hear…) with?
What does the boy touch (see, hear…) in the book?
Where is your nose (hands, ears…)?
How many senses do you have?
What objects can you taste (smell, hear…)?



GPS Standards:
SD1: Children will use
processes of science to actively explore and increase
understanding of the environment.
SD1b: Uses senses to observe, classify, and learn about objects
SD1c: Uses language to describe observation
SE1: Children will develop confidence and positive self-awareness
SE1b: Recognizes self as a unique individual and becomes aware of the
uniqueness of others
LD1: Children will develop skills in listening for the purpose of
comprehension
LD1a: Listens and follows spoken direction
LD1b: Responds to questions
LD3: Children will develop an understanding of new vocabulary
introduced in conversations, activities, stories, or books
LD3b: Uses new words correctly within the context of play or other
classroom activities
LD3c: Connects new vocabulary with prior educational experience
LD5: Children will begin to develop age-appropriate strategies that will
assist in reading
LD5j: Connects information and events in books to real-life
experiences


Objectives: After listening to the story, students will:
  • Match the five senses to picture vocabulary cards on felt board
  • Identify what sense we use for objects found in the mystery bag
  • Identify smells, tastes, sounds, how objects feel and how things look

Procedures

Introduction: Being exposed to the five senses is a very important part of the preschool curriculum. It is necessary for children to know what their body parts are used for which is where our five senses often come in. This lesson will be used to help students match vocabulary in the book to real life. They will be able to identify what is found in the mystery bag and they will be given the opportunity for hands-on experiences in order to be able to identify smells, feels, sounds, taste and how things look.

Implementation: The teacher will read the book My Five Senses by: Aliki. Throughout the story, differentiated questions will be asked of each student to ensure comprehension at different levels. After reading the book during story time, the children will be given the opportunity to manipulate picture vocabulary cards on the smartboard. Once a child pulls out the vocabulary word card, they will slide it through the SmartTalk which will read it to them. After they know the word, they will match it to the corresponding picture word on the smartboard. Once the vocabulary is understood, the teacher will introduce the mystery bag which contains items fulfilling the five senses. Teacher and students will do the mystery bag chant while each child takes his or her turn to pull something out of the mystery bag. The child will then answer a question about the object based on their skill level.

Closure: In this activity, students were given the opportunity to experiences their five senses through a multi-sensory approach. They were given the opportunity to learn through listening to a story, manipulate vocabulary that they may have been unfamiliar with and then to pull items from a bag and use language, whether through verbal language or communication devices, to describe what they found in the mystery bag. Further extensions of this lesson will be provided through circle, centers and story time throughout the remainder of the day and the week.

Objectives: After listening to the story, students will:
  • Students will identify what we smell with
  • Students will identify where your nose is
  • Students will determine how certain things smell
  • Students will recall main points from book read in previous lesson


Procedures:

Introduction: Being exposed to the five senses is a very important part of the preschool curriculum. It is necessary for children to know what their body parts are used for which is where our five senses often come in. This lesson will focus on the sense of smell. Students need to know where their nose is. They will need to communicate that we smell with our nose. Students will also need to be able to determine how things smell. (sweet, sour, bitter, stinky,etc.)

Implementation: Students will assemble at circle and teacher will read the book, My Five Senses by: Aliki. Throughout the story, differentiated questions will be asked of each student to ensure comprehension at different levels. The teacher will have the smartboard on with a picture of a person. The students will use their communication devices and the switch to manipulate what body part fits each sense. We will manipulate the nose last as this is the sense we will focus on today. After we manipulate the five senses, we will have students close their eyes and play the “What do you smell” game. The teacher will have jars of things for the children to smell. (chocolate, cinnamon, lemon juice, coffee, etc.) The children will use their communication devices to determine what they smelled. The students will then do music and movement by singing the Hokey Pokey.

Closure: In this activity, the students were given an opportunity to experience their five senses through a multi-sensory approach, with the emphasis on the sense of smell. They were given the opportunity to learn through listening to a story and using technology to manipulate the five senses with their body part. They had the opportunity to use their sense of smell through an activity with different scents in jars. They were given the chance to communicate what they smelled using whatever communication device was needed. Students were given an opportunity to move through music and movement by singing Hokey Pokey.

It is necessary for children to know what their body parts are used for which is where our five senses often come in. This lesson will focus on the sense of taste. Students need to know where their mouth is and what it is used for. They will need to communicate that we taste with our mouth. Students will also need to be able to determine how things taste. (sweet, sour, salty.)

The students will identify the food item and tell whether it is sweet, sour or salty. Students will then move to the snack table where they will be given an opportunity to taste the different items that were in the mystery bag.

Closure: In this activity, students were given the opportunity to experiences their five senses through a multi-sensory approach. They were given the opportunity to learn through listening to a story, manipulate vocabulary that they may have been unfamiliar with and then to pull different food items from a bag and use language, whether through verbal language or communication devices, to describe what they found in the mystery bag.
