There are five sense organs and they each do something amazing for your body. The sense organs are your eyes, ears, tongue, nose and skin.

The Sense of Sight

Your eye is your sense of sight. First, light enters the eye through the cornea. The cornea sends the light to the pupil, the dark center of the eye.

The Sense of Hearing

you may not notice that the air vibrates when the sound id made. your ears, however, do notice. eardrum vibrations cause three small bones in the middle ear to vibrate. these bones- the hammer, anvil, and srirrup- pass the vibrations to a snailed organ in the inner ear.

The Sense of Smell and Taste

Both your tongue and your nose contain receptor cells, or cells that receive information. The receptor cells in your nose send messages thorough the nerves. Your tongue can only recognize four different kinds of tastes. The four tastes are sweet, salty, sour, and bitter.

The Sense of Touch

Your skin, your sense organ for touch , is your body's largest organ. Sense receptors all over your skin receive receive different sensations.
