The kindergarteners are still exploring their five senses. Today, we explored our sense of smell with a fun game. I had prepared three groups of cotton balls where each group had a different smell. I asked the students to close their eyes as I handed out the cotton balls. Next, they were to smell their cotton ball and find two or three other students who had a cotton ball that smelled the same. Once they found their group, the students had to decide what smell was on their cotton ball. Watch what happened:
After the class discussion, students recorded the members of their group and their smell in their Five Senses Notebook.
The kindergarteners are now officially smelling pros!
