JK Five Senses Festival

At the end of the Unit of Inquiry exploring the Five Senses the JK class holds a Festival, to share their learning with their parents. Our JK students move from station to station with their parents to share their knowledge and explore the five senses with their family. Smelling, seeing, touching, hearing and tasting are explored thorought the unit. The best part is the big 5 Senses Festival day when families participate with their children.

Each student makes a Five Senses hat to wear on the day of the festival; the hat demonstrates the five ways that we perceive our world.
