THE SENSES

We have separate names for the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. People have a better sense of sight than some animals, while some animals, like cats and dogs, have developed a better sense of hearing. What do you think is the reason for this?

ACTIVITY :

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE SENSES

[LO 2.1]

Find pictures that can be used to illustrate the senses of people and animals in old magazines. Compare them and paste them on a sheet of paper.

Look at the pictures. Write the appropriate sense below each picture.
