Bring the fruit around to students or pass them out for students to share. What can we learn about this fruit? You might have used your sense of smell to smell it. You used your sense of touch to feel the texture. If you tried it you could use your sense of taste. We all used our sense of sight to look at it.

What are the other senses you have? When we listen, touch, taste, smell, and see the things around us we are able to find out more information. Ask each group to think about how they used that sense today.

Post the fie senses labels back on the board. Gather the class back together and have each group share out some of their ideas and thinking. Record student thinking under the labels on the board. Display the prepared collage.

Ask students to take a moment and look carefully at the collage. Then have them describe what they see. Explain that a collage is one way to make art.

It is a technique where the artist takes small bits of colored paper or pictures and glues them close together to create a new image or picture. Sometimes a collage has a theme. Tell the students that today they will get to create their very own five senses collage. To make the collage they will get to choose one of the five senses to focus on and choose images from magazines that go with their sense.

Demonstrate this process by asking for a student to choose one of the senses and then model finding a few images in the magazines that go with that sense. Model cutting out the images and layering them close to one another on your paper.

Explain that you could also take different colors of paper and glue them together to make a new image or add to an image.

When you are finished, show students how to write the sense you chose on a small piece of paper and glue it to the top of your collage, like a label.

Independent working time Explain that now students will create their own five senses collages. Go over the instructions as a group, having a different student explain each step. Refer to the pre-written instructions steps for the project on the board for students to use if they forget a step or need support.

Provide supplies to students and have them work independently. Differentiation Gather students who need additional support together to create collages based on the same sense.

Provide students with pre-written five senses labels to use when labeling their collage. Enrichment Have advanced students create an additional collage using another sense. Review and closing Display finished work and gather students together.

Invite two to five students to share their collages with the rest of the class.This lesson plan addresses the following national standards: Students employ a wide range of strategies as they write and use different writing process elements appropriately to communicate with different audiences for a variety of purposes.
