Name Tessa Swiger


Grade Level Kindergarten

Date/Duration 1-2 Class Periods

RATIONALE Students will be introduced to the five senses through fall themed activities.

INTRODUCTION Activating Prior Knowledge

Students will discuss what they see outside of the window during the fall. Students will
describe what they see, and will discuss with what do they use to see.

Hook/Lead-In/Anticipatory Set

Students will listen to the story Cold, Crunchy, Colorful: Using our Senses by Jane
Brockett. The class will share ideas and thoughts on how the pictures could relate to
fall. Students will listen things they hear, see, could smell, taste, or touch during this
time of year, as well as relating it back to the book.


The five senses help us interpret the world around us.

Essential Question Statement

What do we use our eyes/ears/nose/mouth/hands for?
What words can we use to best describe what each sense experiences?

Objective Statement (Audience, Behavior, Condition, Degree)

While working as a whole group, students will correctly identify which sense they
are utilizing through oral and written response five out of five trials.

Ears, eyes, nose, mouth, hands, sight, smell, taste, touch, sound
After reading through the book, the students will be divided into 5 groups (mixed
grouping). The small groups will work together and then will come together as a
large group to discuss each activity.

LESSON PROCEDURE Pre-Assessment of Students

Student will review the roles of each body part. Students will be given a chart to
mark what sense they think we are utilizing in each station. Through
questioning, students will record whether they are using
sight/sound/touch/taste/smell to complete each activity.

Modeling of the Concept

Through modeling, students will use their scientific thinking skills to observe the
objects and assess the activity. The vocabulary of the teacher and how things
could be described will be done in small and whole groups.
The activities are as follows:
1) Sight- what are these? What color are they? How many are there?
2) Taste- (in small Dixie cups, students will have small portions of pumpkin pie)
Is this sweet/sour/salty? Is it hard or soft?
3) Touch- Using the leaves, describe what they feel like? Is it hot or cold outside?
4) Smell- cotton balls will be dipped in various oils (vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon,
lemon) and placed in Dixie cups. As a large group, students will describe the
5) Sound- Can you hear the leaves? What if we _____ (step on them, rub the
together, what if we had sticks?)

*Subject to change due to allergies, adaptations will be made

Guiding the Practice

At the beginning of each activity, students will be prompted questions.

Providing Independent Practice

After the question has been prompted, students will explore each activity,
collaborating in small groups.

After the small group has discussed, the class will come together as a whole to
talk about their thoughts, what sense they used and why they think that (key into
the key words from the questioning, although not directly saying, what do you
see?, encourage students to use descriptive words)
