The Senses

It’s a good thing we have the five senses. Without them how would we experience the world around us? All the resources in this section can be used as a unit of study for the 5 senses. Worksheets, vocabulary cards, cut and glue, booklets, matching activities and lots of coloring are all included to help kids explore and grow in their knowledge and experience of the senses. An added bonus: these materials intertwine with language arts. Kids practice reading, tracing, and writing skills.
