  2. 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. We also react emotionally to sensations, such as a pleasant smell, a bothersome noise, or a soothing sound. 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.
