Let’s take a look at some fun and exciting worksheets that will teach your child the basic concept of senses. Human beings have five senses and they are as follows –
We are all using these senses at all times without even realising it. Imagine going outside for a walk- you can feel the cool breeze against your face and hear the sound of traffic and people’s voices. You buy ice cream and immediately feel a cold sensation as you take it in your hand; you can smell the sweet chocolate and taste the delicious flavour as you take a bite.
During these activities, you used all five of your senses. Now it is important for young children to understand the five senses in order to express themselves. These worksheets aim at doing just that – there is one worksheet for each sense and the task is to understand the feeling depicted in each picture and write it down in the provided boxes. So, let’s get started!
Five Senses Worksheets
The first worksheet is for the sense of touch. Certain scenarios have been depicted in these pictures and children must identify the feeling and write it down.
This is the second worksheet and it is for the sense of smell. Everyone is different and has their own unique perspective so, it is important to note that there is no one correct answer for each of these pictures. Each child is entitled to their own opinion and it is crucial to validate it.
This is the worksheet for the sense of taste. Again, every child has different preferences when it comes to taste and so there no single correct answer. As long as they understand the point of the exercise and have a logical explanation for their answer, there is no wrong or right.
This is the worksheet for the sense of sight. While solving the worksheet, you can also use items in your surroundings to get your child more involved in the activity.
This is the fifth and final worksheet for the sense of hearing. You can use musical instruments and fun songs to help children understand better – it will surely make the activity more fun and enjoyable for them.
After learning about every sense, it is important to emphasize the fact that while the majority of the people we encounter daily possess all five senses, not everybody does. People who cannot hear are referred to as deaf whereas people who cannot see are referred to as blind. It is important to teach children from a young age to be sensitive towards all human beings and to look past differences.
