Did you know that crickets hear with their legs or that butterflies taste with their feet?  Senses are the natural powers of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing that we used to receive information about the world around us.  Activities will find you exploring nature with a different sense each day and learning about animals with superpower senses.
