€37.99

€30.89 ex. VAT

Sensorial game to develop the sense of smell by distinguishing the aroma of different fruits.

The game comprises 12 bottles with the aroma from 12 fruits + 24 photographs from the 12 fruits (entire and in two parts).

The real photographs allow to establish a visual-smell comparison between the fruits and their aromas which increases the knowledge of them.

The educational content of this material is based on developing the sense of SMELL. To do so, it makes use of the natural aroma of certain fruits: strawberry, banana, peach, pineapple, orange, apple, pear, lemon, cherry, coconut, melon and plum. These aromas can be clearly distinguished between each other and encourage OLFACTORY DISCRIMINATION while at the same time enabling the children to establish, together with the photos, a VISUAL-OLFACTORY ASSOCIATION between each fruit and its respective smell.

There is also the possibility of relating the external appearance of each fruit with its internal appearance and aroma, enabling the child to build up a comprehensive and accurate image of the fruit.

This is also an excellent method of DEVELOPING LANGUAGE and extending basic VOCABULARY by means of describing the smells and images of the fruit in terms of their intensity, shape, size, colour, flavour, etc. It also enables classifications to be made using these same criteria. PSYCHO-PEDAGOGICAL OBJECTIVES:
