Curious George: Five Senses

Curious scholars make like Curious George and use their five senses to identify mystery objects. After a brief discussion, learners watch an engaging Curious George video in preparation for an activity. Scholars visit three tables that offer various items to smell, taste, touch, listen to, or examine. Scholars move through the tables and complete a worksheet. Peers share their findings aloud.
