Life Science: “Five Senses Mystery Bag”
Using each sense individually to determine what something is
Everything we know about the world comes to us through our senses. Our senses of hearing, vision,
touch, taste and smell provide critical and essential information about our environment, such as poten-
tial danger and the availability of food. Different regions of our brain work in tandem to process and
create meaning from this flood of sensory data. This is how we understand what we hear, smell, see,
taste and touch.

Captains Sam and Sara are dangerous pirates on their way to Treasure Island. They are going to bury all their
precious treasure of silver and gold. They must hurry so nobody sees them since they wouldn’t want anyone
to steal their loot. But Captains Sam and Sara and their infamous raft aren’t going very fast. Sam blows hard
on the sail to make the raft go faster. Sara says they will need to hurry if they are not to be seen
Can you help Sam and Sara make their raft sail faster?
