Why Do Children Learn 5 Senses?

Teaching the 5 senses to kids in your classroom will help them to look beyond their own experiences and begin to make sense of how all the information that we process via our senses affects the way they see the world. Teaching the five senses to students enables them to consider new ways to gain and process information, as well as how to communicate with their bodies!
