Choose Your Senses Board Game

PDF | 4 pages|Grades: F - Reception

A fun board game to play to consolidate students’ understanding of the five senses.

Use this teaching resource as preparation for learning how to make observations in science.

This board game is designed to practise identifying which senses are used when coming into contact with certain objects/events.

The resource includes:

  • an instruction card
  • a Game Board
  • a senses dice
  • a spinner

Students spin the spinner to know how many spaces to move around the Game Board. They then roll the senses dice to determine the focus sense for that turn. They look at the picture on their Game Board space and decide whether the sense they have thrown on the dice relates to the image on the Game Board. If the sense relates to the image, they remain where they are. If the sense does not relate to the image, they move back to their previous position.
