This is a free printable Five Senses lapbook designed to introduce the student to each of their five senses.
The students will actually get to use each of their senses in the making of the mini books to include in their lapbook with multi sensory activities.
Teach your students about the senses of touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste with the seven booklets in this learning folder.
Here are the resources used in the Five Senses Lapbook:
- 5 Senses Index Book – Includes a page for each of the 5 senses. On each index page, draw or glue pictures of items you can hear, see, smell, taste, or touch.
