About this resource:

The 5 Sense Sorter is an educational and interactive resource designed to help children explore and engage their senses. This resource features five mats, each representing a different sense, along with 25 corresponding flashcards. Children are encouraged to match the flashcards to the sense they would use to experience the item or activity. Through this cut-and-stick activity, children enhance their sensory awareness, whilst developing mindfulness and grounding skills.

The 5 Sense Sorter facilitates learning and development by encouraging children to make connections between their senses and the world around them. It promotes cognitive engagement, language development, and sensory integration.

By actively participating in this resource, children learn to appreciate and understand how their senses contribute to their overall well-being. It provides a fun and interactive way for parents, professionals, and teachers to introduce concepts related to our senses and how our senses relate to our wellbeing.

The 5 Sense Sorter can be utilised as an educational resource in schools, as part of sensory-focused activities, or as a tool for children to explore and develop their sensory awareness.
