I have a passion for dancing and enjoy doing all different styles. I have been dancing since the age of three. I also enjoy fishing and hanging out with my family, boyfriend and friends.

The 5 senses Collection
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 1:50 PM
If anyone wants a better insight on accurate information about the five senses, this collection is perfect to start with.

Because it is so simple, we need to make sure that we are learning the appropriate information that young children will grasp and understand. This collection though, has great journal articles and videos that break it down and make it simple to understand. I especially like the journal article "Journey into the five senses" because it shows how the students use their senses in different locations to investigate the questions they have when doing inquiry. Overall, it is a great collection, good job finding ones that would fit elementary school students because it narrows the information taught for the teachers.
