Five Senses Unit – Early Elementary
Five Senses Packet
This 100+ page Five Senses Unit has dozens of hands-on activities and detailed, colorful worksheets for learning all about the five senses – sight & the eye, hearing & the ear, taste & the tongue, smell & the nose, touch & the skin.
Five Senses: Hands-On Activities
Our family just loves hands-on activities and this Five Senses Packet will keep your kids engaged and excited! The Five Senses Unit includes dozens of activity ideas from cut-and-paste and sorting activities and interactive notebook – lapbook pieces to engaging, fun activities to learn about your sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell & touch.
What age is the Five Senses packet for? This unit includes activities suitable for a homeschool family with a range of ages from PreK through early elementary (ages 4-10 or so). For example, younger kids can complete the tracing anatomy pages while older students can complete more detailed fill-in-the-blank student pages (or read the material independently). Here’s an example of what I mean with the Anatomy of the Eye worksheets:

Younger kids can start off the Five Senses Unit with some sorting or cut-and-paste activities.
Older students might want to start with an interactive notebook – lapbook activity or the Five Senses Booklet.
