  • Pay attention with your senses

    Sensory Activity

    Ask each member to create a chart on a piece of paper listing the senses. See the example below:

     

    See

    Smell

    Hear

    Feel

    Taste

    Trees

    Flowers

    Car engines

    Wind on my face

    Salty snacks

    Concrete

    Smoke from an exhaust

    Birds

    Heat of the sun

    Water

    Kids

    Pine

    Dog barking

    Sprinkling of rain

    Bitterness

     

    Take the group for a walk outside and ask members to write down what they see, smell, hear, feel and taste. At the conclusion of the walk, gather everyone to share. Use the reflection questions below to lead discussion.

     

    Which sense did you use the most?

    Which sense did you use the least?

    How do senses work together to help us perceive our world?

    How would you cope if one sense was taken away?

    Share this Builders Club poster with club members, and remind them that they should observe the world with all their senses each and every day. If they do this, they’re more inclined to see issues that need to be addressed and people who need help.
