Preschoolers explored their sense of taste, touch, sight, smell and hearing with the newly added Five Senses Lotto. We connected the five senses to our new health topic by discussing how they help us identify food and help us listen to what our body is trying to tell us.

This game involved the students taking turns using the spinner to select a sense, find a miniature figurine that matches, then place the miniature figurine on the right spot on the card.

Shown below are the 20 minature figurines.

Five Senses Lotto encouraged the preschoolers to use describing words when discussing each individual item. For example, Violet described the porcupine as feeling prickly and Elliot explained that the strawberry was sweet on his tongue.
