Habit of Mind: Gathering Data Through all Senses
Transcript of Habit of Mind: Gathering Data Through all Senses
Your six senses are: gustatory, olfactory, tactile, kinesthetic, visual, and auditory
You may think you only have five senses, but in reality there are six.
you will find out what these mean shortly
Gustatory means taste.
One example of a person using taste is eating. By tasting the food, the person can decide or judge whether the food tastes good. They can also tell what kind of food it is.
olfactory means smell
You use smell everyday in your life. Sometimes you use it to smell that delicious dinner your mom made. Other times you use it to smell that dirty sewer you walk past every day. Smell even saves lives. People can smell the smoke of a fire when it happens. This allows them to either put it out, or get everyone out of the building and save lives.
"Tactile" means touch.
Touch is extremely important in our lives. You use touch for feeling things like your cat or dog. Either way, you use touch everywhere.
We also use touch to learn. In the picture you saw the kid burn his hand on the stove. The kid now knows that it's hot and that he shouldn't touch it.
Kinesthetic means movement.
Almost all living creatures, including humans, move.
Some animals, like sharks, have to move in order to survive. If they don't, they'll sink and die.
Other animals, like humans, move in order to get around.
Whenever your eyes are open, you're using sight. We use to do almost everything in our lives
Try guessing what the picture is.
If you guessed a starfish, you were right.
You also use it to read, play video games, watch TV, drive, and more!
We use our hearing for things like listening to music. We also use it to listen our friends when they're talking, and for listening to the teacher.

the Lord has made them both.
