Senses Investigation

Recommended Posts

Just done this recently and we did it via story of Handa's Surprise - For K+U activity tables we did 'explore and investigate' element of FS -we had a variety of fruits from story, tasted,smelt,touched etc -compared dried/tinned/fresh varieties of fruits and encouraged devlt of vocab. On another table we had whole fruit/half fruit to explore independently with mirrors and magnifying glasses. A simple and cheap taste investigation I've done before is guessing the flavour of crisps that look the same - have diff paper plates,etc -children could do a simple group recording by sticking empty crisps bags on a simple chart or teacher scribe comments. Smell activity - make 'smelly jellies' using gelatine, colouring and variety of scents - or cotton wool with scents (there has been a recent discussion on forum with some good ideas) Hope these help a bit - good luck! It seems evryone is either being observed by heads or OFSTED at the moment!!

We had a texture trail for feet! Lots of different materials - furry rug, builders plastic sheet, bubble wrap, door mat etc. and made a trail around a slightly darkened room - not dangerously dark but ust to make it more fun/ and to think about not using our eyes.

 

It was fun and made the children think and created lots of talk. :)
