Today the lad and I learned about the five senses.
We cut out pictures of mouths, ears, noses, eyes, and hands.
We talked abit about how fish hear (vibrations in the water), and how people can hear better by cupping their hands over their ears (we had fun with this one whispering up and down the stairs).
We then played with a bunny and a cat for a while and used our five senses to learn different things about them. How bunnies smell like bunnies and cats smell like cats and people smell like people. 🙂 Bunny fur is different than cat fur. Bunnies ears are shaped differently than a cat and so are their eyes. it was VERY interesting to a cat and bunny crazy lad of five.
We then traced out the words for the five senses. Then mommy wrote down different words for each sense that the lad could come up with.
Sight: looking, seeing, pretty, ugly, nice, colour, differences
Taste: tasting a chip, sweet, sour, salty, hot, spicy, yummy, “sometimes good, sometimes not good”
Hear: hear, listening, sounds “too much noise”, “milo comes when he hears you calling Milo come here”.
Smell: Chip eating, yuck, nose, “ew” “mmm” “cats – can smell like cats”
Touch: hands, fingers, somethings don’t mind if you touch them, “helps blind people pay money”.
All in all, a good time learning by a five year old. 🙂
