Teachers Network: Adaptor Grants: Our Five Senses
 Adapted By: Stella Lee Stella Lee has taught for seven years. She taught kindergarten for three years and first grade for four years. She loves introducing hands-on experiments to children in the early grades. The children find it interesting and fun. P.S. 35 Bronx, NY Principal: Graciela Navarro Original Project by Isabel Salido Modifications Students designed a "touch box" to present the objects. The students were asked, "Does the sense of sight help you identify what you feel? If they answered yes, they were able to look at the picture of the object while feeling for it in the touch box. If they answered no, they had to feel and find the object without looking at a picture. Our lab teacher created a computerized activity, which required the students to identify how objects would feel. In one activity, they had to identify objects which felt cold vs. hot. In the second activity, they had to classify objects as hard or soft. Instructional Objectives Students Will: Make predictions about the selected objects and check their predictions. Use their sense of touch to identify various objects. Use the knowledge they acquired about the touch sense to design the class science fair project Worked together in cooperative settings to gather, share, and discuss information. Technology Integration The students completed several computerized activities created by our lab teacher. Assessment The students were assessed using the following: observation of how students managed their hands on activities, accountable talk, and writing pieces. Tips for Teachers Feel free to modify lessons and activities according to your students' abilities and interests. For the early grades, try to incorporate as many hands on experiences as possible. The children in these grades perform will when they can participate in their learning experiences. Student Work Samples Click on each thumbnail to see a full-screen version.
