    MAKING "SENSE" OF YOUR FIVE SENSES

    Your five senses; hearing, smelling, tasting, seeing and touching help you notice the world around you. They are pretty powerful! We are going to explore how our senses work and what kinds of information they tell you. We will work in partners to rotate through these following stations: Seeing station, hearing station, smell station, taste station (my personal favorite), and touch station. 

    These stations will offer a variety of activities that will help you make sense of your senses!

    JUNKYARD WONDERS

    We will be teaching a unit on reduce, reuse, recycle using the book "Junkyard Wonders" by Patricia Polacco.  We will split the students into tribes just like they did in the book.  The students will learn that we are all wonderful in our own special ways.  We have to work together to make anything work.  They will create different things from junk and turn it into wonderful pieces of art and games while learning how we can recycle as well as reuse things over and over again. A lot of the activities will be STEM based activities but could be for any age group. Older students will learn how to work with younger students and vice-versa. We will be making robots, airplanes, cities from cardboard boxes, games, handbags, and much much more from everyday "junk".
