Five Senses Sorting Activity

On each of the Five Senses Sorting Activity worksheets, there are two columns and a collection of four images. Each column has one of the five senses; sound, sight, touch, taste, and smell.

Kids can cut out the images and paste them into the appropriate column. Each page covers two senses, so kids can sort the images into two senses at a time.

There are four pages in this senses sorting activity.

I tried to choose images that would clearly apply to one sense over another. However, there are some items that may apply to more than one sense. For example, the ice cream image is related to the sense of taste. Ice cream may also engage the sense of sight. In a situation like this, I think either choice could be “correct” based on the child’s interpretation. This is a great conversation starter with kids and an opportunity to talk about how many items engage more than one sense.

Teaching Kids About the Five Senses

The five senses are a common topic in preschool, pre-K, and kindergarten. Kids can learn about the type of information each sense provides to the body. They can also learn which body parts mediate each sense. Our ears allow us to hear, our eyes allow us to see, and so on.

There are many ways to learn about the five senses. I love this list of 20 five senses activities from We Are Teachers.
