Hearing, Sight, Smell, Taste, and Touch
Using our senses allows to appreciate things in the world around us that we might not have noticed before.
Discuss each of the five senses, then go outside and tap into one sense at a time. Describe what you focused on for each of the senses. Use as much detail as possible to describe what you're experiencing.
Hearing: outside I heard the clunk of garbage trucks in the distance. The slight drip from our gutters as water is hitting the sidewalk. Birds in trees around me squawk and chirp at each other.
Taste: As I stood there I could taste my breakfast from this morning. The granola piece still stuck in my molar.
Touch: I stood with my hand on our deck banister. I felt the rough texture of peeling paint and rigid wood.
