Students brought fall items in from home
and we graphed them. Half of the class then predicted items we
would look for in our walk to the Benn Nature Conservancy using
our five senses. Using Kidspiration we turned their predictions
into a graph. During the field trip each child also filled in
their own 5 senses chart in the woods. After our fieldtrip, we
brainstormed with the other half of the class on what was
actually seen/heard/tasted/felt/smelled at the Benn. Another
Five Senses Kidspiration graph shows what we actually
experienced at the Benn.
