Five Senses Introduction

Learners Will:
  • Hear that God made our body with five senses
  • Identify the five senses
  • Use their senses to smell, touch, taste, see, and hear 
  • Make the connection between their senses and the appropriate body part
  • Hear that some people do not have all the five senses
  • Be told that those who do not have all the senses are equally important and special


  • Count to five in English and in Spanish while pointing to your eyes, ears, mouth, nose, and hands.
  • This unit can be divided to cover one sense at a time or all of them together at once.
  • Have Learners cite the five senses while pointing to the body parts used.


  • Write and trace the numbers one (1) through five (5).
  • Write and trace the word and number five (5).
  • Draw a rectangle and write the numbers one (1) to five (5).
  • Write and trace the words “five senses, see, hear, smell, touch, and taste”.
  • Provide a rectangle for Learners to draw or attach cutouts or stickers of eyes, ears, noses, mouths, and hands.
  • Cut eyes, ears, noses, hands, and mouths from magazines.
  • Color pictures of eyes, ears, noses, hands, and mouths.


  • Most people have five senses. Sometimes one or more of a person’s senses will not work very well or at all. For example, some people are blind and do not have the sense of sight. Others are deaf and do not have the sense of hearing.
