Concept Web

A Concept Web displays the relationship between the Five Senses and the way the body gathers information through the five senses. Sight information is received through the eyes. Hearing information is received through the ears. Touch information is received through the Hands, Feet, and Skin. Smell information is received through the nose, and Taste information is received through the mouth and tongue.
