Power of the Brain 1: Investigating Our Senses
What are my senses?
- Project page
Identity and diversity
This hands-on learning programme is designed to help children aged 5–7 to explore their different senses and the role of the brain.
Introduce your pupils to the five main senses and the body part or organ linked to them. Then look together at how our senses interact by carrying out an experiment to see if the colour of a drink affects our preference and taste. Developed for Dreamachine by A New Direction in partnership with the British Science Association, the 11-page PDF lesson plan includes plenty of prompts for questions and discussions, plus links and resources for further learning.
