The importance of taste

The first and second graders have been learning about their different senses. This week they explored the importance of taste. Working in pairs, one child was asked to put on a blindfold and hold their nose while their partner fed them a small sample of a seven different foods. They then had to try to identify the foods without their sense of taste or sight. The partner without the blindfold recorded their partner’s guesses. Distinguishing foods based only on texture is tricky!

Even though some had doubts, every child tried each sample in the name of science! (Although, admittedly, the onion was not popular with anyone.)
