Watch the youngster hustle and complete our free, printable five senses worksheets in their excitement to know more about and practice the five senses: sight, taste, touch, hearing, and smell. We use our senses, or sense organs, to collect and respond to information about our environment. While it's true that sight is our dominant sense and hearing the most sensitive, other senses are equally important for us to survive, too. Our five senses worksheet pdfs include identifying objects you can hear, matching objects to words that express how they taste, and more.

Our five senses worksheets are ideal for children in preschool, kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2.

Had it not been for our ears, we couldn't hear the best guitar, the drums, or the trumpet's most relaxing music! Preschool and kindergarten kids look at the many pictures here, and figure out which ones they use their ears to experience. Identify and circle these pictures.

Matching Things to Taste Words

How about some honey lemon water in the morning? Not only is this an excellent drink, it's also a combination of two taste words: sour lemon and sweet honey. Children in preschool, kindergarten, and 1st grade match the pictures to the correct taste words.

Recognizing Good and Bad Smells

"To me, the smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the greatest inventions," said Hugh Jackman. But not all things smell as great, as in this pdf. Cut and glue "thumbs up" next to nice-smelling pictures and "thumbs down" beside foul-smelling ones.
