What Is This? A Five Senses Game
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Let's play a game. I will pretend to put something in your hand. I will use my senses to describe the object while you imagine holding it. I will use my sense of sight last. Maybe you will guess what it is before I tell you what it looks like! Finally, I'll tell you what the item is, but I will spell it backwards to make it more like a game!
 
2     What is this? It lies cold and wet on your palm. It is lightweight. You close your fingers around it. It's solid, and squeezing does not change its shape. You shiver and lift the object to your nose. You sniff but smell nothing. You shake it, but it makes no sound. You stick your tongue out and give it a lick. There's nothing salty, sweet, sour, or bitter about the object. It's almost as if you are licking water. If you open your eyes, you will see a rather square-ish shape that is almost clear. What is it? Clearly, it's an: eci ebuc.
 
3     What is this? You feel heat on your hand. The object is long and narrow. You give it a pinch, and it seems to be a bit crisp on the outside but soft on the inside. You shake it but hear nothing. You lift it to your nose and inhale the aroma of a potato. You lick the item. It's salty! You take a small bite and chew. It tastes salty and wonderful, and you wish you had some ketchup for dipping! You open your eyes and look down at the golden brown strip in your hand. You knew all along that you were holding a: hcnerf yrf.
