Five Senses

Transcript: The Five Senses- Integrated Curriculum KWL Chart activity for: pre- K W K L The Five Senses - We have five senses: sight, smell, taste, touch, and listen - We use the senses to understand the world around us - We use our eyes to see - Our ears to hear - Our nose to smell - Our hands to touch - sometimes we do not like what we sense (such as food can be yucky, or we see something scary) - How do we taste? How can our tongue taste things? - What can we use our five senses for? - Different words to explain what we sense - What parts of the body do we use for our five senses? - What different things can we taste? - What do we use the senses for in our everyday lives? - How can we use the senses to solve problems and answer questions? - Our tongue has taste buds that help us taste - there are different words we can use to describe what we sense (such as sweet, salty, rough, hot, cold, warm, bumpy, smooth, bitter, bright, dark, spiky, etc.) -sometimes hearing different things can make us feel different things Language and Lit Language & Literacy - The five senses is a great opportunity for introducing preschoolers to adjectives - the children can explore their senses and discover the adjectives to describe them Activities: - tasting different foods and recording the descriptions (crunchy, salty, bitter, sweet, smooth) - using sensory objects to discover and record new words (Ex: This object feels bumpy) materials: - different flavored and textured foods for the taste- testing activity - books about the senses - web/ poster to introduce the class to the five senses, and the labeled anatomy behind each sense (eyes/sight) - writing and drawing supplies materials needed: Science science The Five Senses unit will mainly be science based, since the preschoolers are exploring human anatomy. - activity: the introduction to the unit: the teacher will draw a figure with missing body parts, specifically eyes, mouth, hands, or ears. The teacher will call on students to fill in the missing parts, which will lead into the five senses lesson. - activity 2: mystery bag game- students will form hypotheses and experiment Art Expression Art Expression - the five senses can link to expression, such as the connection between what we sense and how it makes us feel. - music and art project - exploring different colors - exploring how different colors make us feel and what they often symbolize social- emotional social- emotional - as explained in the last slide, our senses can trigger certain emotions. - the class can explore certain things they see and hear and explain how it makes them feel. (Ex: listen to a recording of people laughing, happy music, a sad picture, a picture of a dog playing, etc.) - They will also be introduced to understanding that not everyone has all five senses. The class can read stories and learn about people that were born without some senses (such as blindness, or deafness) and learn to understand peoples differences. Creativity and Play - Exploring the senses through self- directed play - Activity: Nature walk and writing down what they used their senses for - playing at sensory tables with different textured objects creativity and play Social Emotional Social- Emotional PK.SEL.1.b. "Appropriately names types of emotions (e.g., happy, excited, sad) and associates them with diferent words and behaviors" (p.13) PK.ELAL.24. Expresses thoughts, feelings, and ideas (e.g., role-playing, music, drawing, art work, building, writing) PK.ARTS.10.b. Explores and demonstrates awareness of the contrasts and expressive qualities of music (i.e., voice/sound quality, tone, dynamics, pitch, and tempo) Cognitive Cognitive NYS Standards for Pre-K include: "PK.PDH.1. Uses senses to assist and guide learning." (P. 10) PK.AL.3. Approaches tasks and problems with creativity, imagination and/or willingness to try new experiences PK.AL.4. Exhibits curiosity, interest, and willingness to learn new things and have new experiences Comm, Lang and Lit Language PK.AC.1.b Asks questions PK.AC.2. c. Attempts to use new vocabulary correctly PK.AC.2. d. Makes comparisons to words and concepts PK.AC.6. b. Uses existing objects to represent desired or imagined objects in play or other purposeful way c. Uses visual media to represent an actual experience d. Reviews and reflects on their own representations e. Writes and/or draws to communicate meaning with peers and adults during play

Five Senses

Transcript: Five Senses Hearing Like your other organs, your ears are extremely well - designed just like your other organs. Your ears serve two very imporant purposes.Your ears help you hear sounds and your ears also help you keep your balance. When an object makes a noise, it sends vibrations speeding through the air. The vibrations are funneled into your canal by your outer ear. Near the top of the cochlea are three loops called semi - circular channels. The channels are full of liqud. When you move your head, the liqud in your channel moves. Links I Used Thank You So Much When someone goes blind they can develop somthing called an acute spatial awareness. Also when someone goes blind the effect on other senses is that the sense of hearing is above average than other senses. When you are born you can only see blurry shapes because babies are very nearsighted. The light rays enter into your eyes through the cornea, which is a thick, transparent layer on the surface of your eye. After that, the light rays pass through to the pupil,which is the dark circle in the center of your eye. After it passes through the pupil, it moves to the lens. Then it moves to the retina, which is the size of a thumbnail, filled with approximately 150 million light - sensitive cells. They are called rods and cones. Smell When you smell somthing, what you are smelling are small tiny things called odor particles. Millions of them are floating in the air waiting to be smelled. You can smell these odors through your nose which is almost like a huge cave built to smell, and filter the air you breathe. As you breathe in, the air enters through your nostrils which contain little hairs. They filter all kinds of things trying to enter your nose. These hairs are called cilia. The nasal cavity, which is the big place the air passes through on it's way to the lungs. Our sense of smell is connected really well to our brain. THE End!!! Taste A baby's taste buds develop when their mom is 21 weeks pregnant with the baby. Your taste buds change every 7 years. This is why when you are a kid you may like something, then when you are a teenager you don't like it any more. Your tongue and the roof of your mouth are covered in thousands of tiny cells. When you eat something the saliva helps break down the food. When you were a baby not only did you have them on your tounge and the top of your mouth, you had them on the sides of your mouth also. Fun Facts Did you know most people blink every 2 - 10 seconds? If you had one eye everything would appear two - dimensional. People who can not smell have something called Anosmia. Also as you get older, your sense of smell gets worse. You have more pain nerves than anything else in your body. You have almost 10,000 taste buds in your mouth. Girls have more taste buds than boys. Children's ears are more sensitive than adults. Animals can hear more sounds than humans. Touch The Sense of touch is found all over you. The nerve endings in your skin can tell if something is hot or cold. They can also tell if something is hurting you. Touch sensations gives our brains a wealth of information about the environment around us. Sight
