The Five Senses-Helen Keller

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

We are currently studying Helen Keller using Beyond Five in a Row. The boys are really loving it. We have gone over the parts of an eye, what makes a person nearsighted vs. farsighted (which is a great lesson since both boys recently got glasses-They are both farsighted), the parts of an ear, and the five senses. We had a discussion about how other senses take over if you lose one or in Helen's case, two. Today we went over adjectives related to each of the five senses...we came up with words like acrid, furry, foul, rough, muffled, shrill, bitter, bright, etc.

Another activity we did was to pull verses related to the five are some of them:


"For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing." II Corinthians 2:15


"But my eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign Lord; in you I take refuge..." Psalms 141:8


"Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live." Isaiah 55:3


"Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that takes refuge in him." Psalms 34:8


"Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand." Isaiah 64:8
