Scenario Mission
You have gone to your Grandma's house.  At Grandma's, she has a beautiful garden and she wants you to go to her garden to do some things for her.

     While you are in the garden, Grandma wants you to bring her some vegetables or fruit to eat.  Make sure you pick your favorite ones!  Grandma wants you to look for some pretty flowers to make her house smell nice as well.
 

Mission Steps
Step One:  Go to each website above to learn all about your five senses.

Step Two: 
While picking the vegetables, fruits, and flowers, use your hands to feel the different objects.  Listen for sounds that you hear in the garden too.  Do you hear any animals or nature? Grandma wants you to tell her all about the different things you tasted, felt, heard, saw and smelled while you were in her garden.

Step Three: 
After using your senses to go into the garden, draw a picture of what you saw, heard, felt, smelled, and tasted while you were in the garden.
