To get ready for biobuddies tomorrow, we explored our sense of taste today. We looked in mirrors at our tastebuds, then tried out a sour food (dill pickle), a bitter food (baking chocolate), a sweet food (Oreo cookie) and a salty food (pretzel). We talked about how our senses of smell and taste are linked, so some children tried holding their noses to see if they could still taste all four items. Surprisingly, many students actually liked the unsweetened baking chocolate!
We graphed our favorite taste--the Oreos, the sweet treat, came out as the clear favorite. A few students drew some of their favorite foods as well. Look for more pictures tomorrow from our five senses stations with our biobuddies!
