Knowing the Senses; Sense booth I-Care activity at GIIS Surat
I use sense of sight each day, gazing the world when at play.
I hear stomping of shoes, my hearing sense is number two.
Eating is such a treat, I know the difference between bitter and sweet.
I use my hands to know and touch, each thing has a texture oh so different much!
Sniffing all the odours out, my nose keeps me standing out.
Our senses let us experience such variety of things in our daily lives. From eating different kinds of foods, to smelling those calming fragrances, feeling of touch, etc. our senses enrich our live with great pleasure.
With an objective of introducing different sense organs of the human body, sense booth day was organized for the tiny tots of Kindergarten at Global Indian International School (GIIS), Surat. Pre-primary facilitators along with teachers set up five different sense booth to make students understand the function and importance of each organ in a fun and innovative way.
The children got an opportunity to have hands-on experience about the elementary purpose of each organ. Visual aids comprised of the sight booth, for touch sense different textures and sensations were introduced. Taste and smell booths had children experience different tastes and fragrances respectively. Lastly, the hearing booth had children experience different types of sounds followed by pot on the functioning of the ear.
The objective of providing an interactive way of introducing the five sense organs to the children was effectively achieved as each child participated in multitude activities organized to help them focus and notice the function of each organ more closely. Hence, reinforcing the concept of five senses.
