This Sense of Place lesson plan also includes:

Explore the five senses with a kindergarten instructional activity on gardening. After taking a walk through the class garden, kids note what they see, hear, feel, taste, and smell, and then decide what is living in the garden versus what is not living. They use an attached worksheet to record their observations, and decide what guidelines should be followed when a class is in the garden.
