Summary

This guide provides group activities for teachers to aid in planning a multicultural curriculum for developing sensory perception in children. The guide emphasizes the cognitive processes involved in sorting out sensory data and the use of multicultural materials as resources for sensory experience. Activities are presented in six sections. Section I introduces the goals of the guide and discusses sensory perception as a system of sensing and thinking. Section II, Observation and the Senses, helps teachers to recall their own sensory awareness through a sense walk and presents an exercise in observing children involved in sensory experience. Activities in Section III, Touch, call for participants to explore the texture of a cornstarch/water mixture, develop a texture wordlist, examine materials of similar textures, and work with size and shape. Suggested classroom activities are included. Section IV, Tasting and Smelling, features multicultural food and cooking experiences. Section V, Hearing, presents a scavenger hunt in which participants must collect specified sounds on a cassette tape recorder. Participants also list classroom activities such as chanting, singing, listening to music from other cultures, and making instruments. Section VI, Sight, investigates patterns, symmetry, and spatial relationships. Each section presents objectives and worklists and allows participants to create relevant classroom activities. An appendix provides sample Native American recipes for the Tasting and Smelling section. (KC)
