Sensory System Explorations
Author(s): Barbara Tharp, Judith Dresden, and Nancy Moreno.
Each Explorations is an extension of the activities done in class. The cover of The Sensory System Explorations asks students to determine what do the items shown have in common. The magazine discusses the structure and purpose of the sensory system. It offers activities such as vision puzzle tests for balance, and creating camouflage to hide a toad. The Explorations also features an interview with a nurse anesthetist who explains her choice of careers.
This magazine is an integrated component of the Sensory System unit. Though designed for use with students in grades 3–5, The Sensory System Explorations also may be appropriate for students in grade 6.
