Need some great examples of amazing animal senses for an information processing unit covering sensory receptors and how they respond to stimuli? Here are 22 color, photo sort, digital or printable cards to match with fascinating description cards for the students to figure out. Did you know that crickets have ears on their knees? Did you know that catfish taste with their skin?
There are 22 images of both vertebrates and invertebrates along with 22 mystery descriptions that the students need to match with the images.
As I prefer to do with most of my products, this resource can be used across quite a few grades. Any one of the images can be well developed into a deeper discussion or even student research. I have included vocabulary in the mystery discussions(echolocation, chemoreceptors, etc. ) that could definitely be explored further.
