Learning about the five senses is an important developmental stage that children must go through to better understand their bodies and the world around them. Here are dozens of fun and original science activities that explore taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing, all tailored to the abilities and funny bones of children 4 to 8. Simple props like a pirate's eye patch or a pair of goofy sunglasses help children to understand the wonders of human sight. Wearing a spicy cinnamon-stick necklace reveals a surprising fact about our sense of smell. More activities, silly songs, and lively illustrations will inspire young scientists in their quest to understand the five senses and how we use them to make sense of our world.
