1 Hook

Activity: Presenting

Students will be introduced to the 5 sense song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtwV9Mi_aNk&noredirect=1

This will help the students to become aware of the 5 senses. 

2 Direct Instruction

Activity: Presenting

The teacher will begin to present the 5 senses to the students. Together with the students they will begin to look at what each sense does...for example a nose smells...what does it smell? Then make a list of things they can smell. Then they will move onto eyes which we use to see....what do we see? and so on. 

3 Guided Practice

Activity: Exploring

The teacher will begin by showing the students the following website: http://www.kidcyber.com.au/topics/body_senses.htm

As they work their way through the site they will explore the 5 senses and reinforce their learning. This site is interactive and will help the students with the visual aspect. 

4 Wrap up

Activity: Creating

The students will wrap up the lesson by singing the song from the hook. They will work on adding motions to help remember what the 5 senses are and what they do.
