Using Our Senses: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 4.
Page, Laura M.; Reed, Elizabeth W.
This volume is the fourth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by kindergarten teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of seven groups of activities. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. This unit deals with the five senses. After an introductory pair of lessons on exploring sense impressions, groups of lessons for sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch are discussed. A final section of lessons is titled "Fun With Our Senses." Bibliographies for both students and teacher are included in this volume. (SD)
