  • 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
