Your students will love hearing (and seeing and touching and smelling and tasting) about the five senses with this new printable pack from Scholastic Teachables. It’s a great go-to resource to supplement your science, reading, writing, and math lessons.

The Five Senses pack is 50+ pages of lessons, activities, mini-books, learning centers, and more to help kids learn about their senses while also building cross-curricular skills and knowledge. Compiled by education experts, the pack comes with teaching guidance to make setting up a series of lessons quick and effortless.

Kick off the unit with a sing-along song, Use Your Five Senses, and create a running chart to add to throughout the unit. Follow up with vocabulary practice pages and a mini-book (in both Spanish and English) that helps build fluency and knowledge.

Five hands-on science centers, one for each sense, allow students to experience and explore smell, taste, touch, sight, and sound individually. Then use the mini-book I Love Popcorn! to discuss how the senses work together so that we can experience the world around us. Two descriptive writing exercises and a series of craftivities deepen learning and give students the chance to show what they know.

The pack also includes a manipulative mini-book, This is My Home, specifically designed for use with families. Kids will love filling out the mini-book with descriptions of how they use their senses to experience their favorite parts of where they live.
