This resource is to be used in conjunction with 2 sensory walks to take place from the school in any environment convenient to the context of the school. On the first walk, learners are asked to record what they see, hear, smell and feel. This sheet is provided with prompts.
Learners are then split into 4 groups. Each group will focus in on one sense and groups will have the task of presenting their sensory journey to their peers. Learners are free to decide how they are to present their sense to the rest of the group. A sheet of suggested presentations is provided. Once this has been decided, learners do their second walk where they collect anything that will help them in their presentations. Once back at school, learners will be able to deliver their findings to their peers in the presentation style that they have chosen.
