Program 1: Introduction
A brief introduction to the five senses – what they are, what sense organs are used, how our senses help us gather information and help protect us.
Program 2: Sight
Our eyes allow us to see the world around us. They are so important that we must learn to protect them from the sun. Our eyes are like a camera. In this program, Nadia explains how our eyes work – how they allow us to see people, places, things, colour and movement. Some people have trouble seeing. In this case, sometimes we need to wear glasses. Other people cannot see at all. These people are blind and use the Braille Alphabet to read. Terminology used includes: eyes, pupil, retina, optic nerve, eyelashes, eyelids, optician, optometrist, blindness, UV rays.
Program 3: Hearing
Nadia visits a music store where we hear the strumming of a guitar. Imagine a world where you couldn’t hear. Some people can’t and this is called deafness. Those of us who are lucky enough to be able to hear must learn to take care of our ears. They are very important in collecting sounds, processing them and sending sound signals to our brains. Terminology used includes: ears, inner ear, middle ear,outer ear, sound waves, vibration, eardrum, cochlea, hearing aid, deafness, audiologist.
