Sensory Scavenger Hunt

In the garden this week the students explored the five senses as they relate to different plants in the garden. They got into groups of 2-4 and wrote out descriptions of how a plant feels with touch, how a plant looks using vision, how a plant smells, what is heard when we close our eyes and listen, and how a plant tastes. This lesson helped students use descriptive language, as well as identify the plants in the garden. The photo is of an unripe strawberry that a student sampled as part of the taste section of the lesson. It tasted sour like a green apple.
