Making Sense! is a colorful, engaging picture/storybook book that introduces students to the brain and the five senses as they solve mystery picture puzzles.
The storybook is an integrated component of the Senses unit, which includes K-1: The Senses Teacher's Guide. However, it may be used as a stand-alone reading activity.
This publication is most suitable for students in kindergarten and 1st grade, but also may be used with students at the Pre-K level.
