In conjunction with the themes covered this resource package, educators and parents may consider some of the following activities and ideas:
- Fill up jars with different scents and have the children cover their eyes to guess the smell: Banana? Soap? Potato chips? Does it smell like something to eat? What is the children’s favourite food smell?
- Fill up containers with different items. Have the children cover their eyes and identify and describe their textures: Rough? Smooth? Soft? Hard?
- Conduct a taste test using sour, bitter, sweet and salty items. How many could the children identify?
- Create a group concept map of things the children can see, hear, smell, feel and taste over the day.
