We've been focusing on the senses that past few weeks for our science activities. So far we have covered touch, smell, and now this week taste. The inspiration for this taste activity came from my friend Kristina over at School Time Snippets. She did this activity as part of a Five in a Row lesson on the book Lentil. Kristina blogs about all their Five in a Row adventures (and more!) which I always find inspiring! If you're not familiar with her blog, check it out! Later I also found this post from Raising the Cameron Clan and use a lot of their ideas too, so check that one out as well if this sounds fun to you!
So here is what we did...
|First I gathered our supplies. Into Dixie Cups went lemon juice, vanilla extract, and sugar water and salt water that I made.|
Here are some fun pictures I captured. I don't remember which face was for which taste...except I'm pretty sure that the one he is sucking on was the sugar water =)
|Of course this turned into a dumping activity for Mackenzie...this girl is obsessed!|
