All students in school were given the opportunity to play different challenges related to senses. Students were asked to identify different inputs like sounds, pictures, odors, materials, sometimes with their eyes folded, and identify reactions, feelings, sensations.
The five senses of hearing, touch, sight, taste and smell are the primary means we use to gain new knowledge. ... Using many senses to gain information helps learning to be more meaningful and useful. Children naturally learn with all the senses so it makes sense to alert them for its importance. Therefore, the best way to teach children about their senses is to have them use them.
Teachers involved in the activity were Marta Ferreira, Clara Vilar, Emília Quintas, Conceição Rego, conceição Costa, Marta Antunes and Zulmira Lima. Other teachers participated by taking their classes to the school spots where the games were available.
