Smell

Hear

Feel

Taste

Trees

Flowers

Car engines

Wind on my face

Salty snacks

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.
