Five Senses Sense of Sight Activity

Teaching science outside is probably one of my favorite ways to engage my learners.  There is so much to learn and see just from exploring the outdoors.  This five senses book is great for the classroom or to get the kids outside when they are home.

Five Senses

One of my favorite authors is P.K. Hallinan and I love his book The Looking Book.  It is perfect to teach the sense of sight to little learners.  We used this book to get my little man outside while his is on summer break, too.

The book shared the story of two little boys who are spending too much time in front of a screen.  Their mom gives them some lookers to wear outside.  They go outside and find so many different things.

Let’s Go Looking

I gave Grayson some glasses that I picked up at the Dollar Tree and pushed out the lenses.  I sent him outside to explore.  At first he noticed all of the big toys and trees, but then we looked a little bit closer.

We found a mushroom, vines, bugs and even a bird’s nest.  It didn’t take long for him to realize how much there was to see.  Especially since he spends more time playing baseball and football outside than exploring.  Oh how I love this kid!

So Much Science

It was a great way to start talking about the nature that is in our backyard.  We also touched on the topic of living, nonliving and used to be living things.  So much science in one simple activity!

My Looking Book

After exploring, we went inside and Grayson shared what he found with his lookers by writing his own looking book.  He completed each “I looked and found…” sentence and illustrated the pages.
