A WebQuest for Hillendale Health


In Hillendale Health class we learn about our amazing bodies. Our bodies constantly interact with the environment surrounding us. Our sense organs (nose, eyes, ears, tongue, and skin) take in information and send it to the brain for processing. Can you smell the flowers blooming in the Spring or those cookies baking in the oven? Do you hear the birds singing in the morning or the crickets chirping on a warm summer's night? Taste those cookies, pizza, or ice cream! Look at that picture, lightning bolt, or yourself in the mirror! Feel this, isn't it soft, hard, rough, hot, cold? All of these experiences are made possible due to our amazing senses! If we didn't have them, we would not be able to smell, see, hear, taste, or touch anything! Talk about a boring life.

What would life be like without your senses?

Which sense would be the most difficult to live without?
