Mrs. Taylor's 1st grade
Session 2: Week 2 June 26-30
*We then tried taking away our sense of sight and just relying on our ears for where to go. We had one person stand in the middle of the circle while others stood outside the circle with some type of noisemaker (beans in a water bottle or beans in a can). The middle person had to walk until they got too close to a another person. They knew they were too close when that person shook their noisemaker.
*With a partner we created a code with the noisemaker. They had to decide together which sound means "come here" and which sound means "walk away".
What if you had an Animal Nose? and Smell Challenge!
*We discussed how the sense of smell can help an animal to survive by smelling it's food.
*We blindfolded some kids and had them smell something then they tried to guess what it was. We smelled: vanilla and black raspberry Scentsy scents, marshmallows, glue, a Hershey kiss, and Raisels (sour raisins). We talked about how when we took away our others senses of touch, sight, taste, and hearing it was much harder to know what it was!
