Overview

Learning about the five senses is an important developmental stage that children must go through to better understand their bodies and the world around them. Here are dozens of fun and original science activities that explore taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing, all tailored to the abilities and funny bones of children 4 to 8. Simple props like a pirate's eye patch or a pair of goofy sunglasses help children to understand the wonders of human sight. Wearing a spicy cinnamon-stick necklace reveals a surprising fact about our sense of smell. More activities, silly songs, and lively illustrations will inspire young scientists in their quest to understand the five senses and how we use them to make sense of our world.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
According to the author, this is "an adventure in understanding the wonders of our senses." The activities presented are fully developed with lists of materials, related readings, and songs and poems. Although all of the activities initially require adult supervision, the material is presented in a manner that can be developed into a center, thus allowing children to continue learning on their own. Each of the five units is made up of thirteen to fifteen child-tested activities, for a total of seventy-four activities. Preschool teachers and child care workers will delight in this one-volume encyclopedia of science activities. Grandparents and parents wishing to encourage curiosity in children will want to include this book in their home libraries.
