  • 1. Senses A Science A–Z Life Series Word Count: 140 Senses Written by Katie Knight Visit
  • 2. Senses KEY ELEMENTS USED IN THIS BOOK The Big Idea: All animals have senses. Some have a very acute sense of vision, hearing, or smell. But what makes humans unique as a species is our ability to make informed, intelligent decisions based upon the information we gather through our senses.

It is important for students to appreciate and protect their senses, so they can learn from the world around them and have a lifetime full of rich experiences.
