Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the sense of taste and smell through interactive experiments and discussion about the role it plays in our daily lives.
I used these challenges throughout my teaching career. The students were excited to do the challenges and this helped them to retain the concepts we discussed in class.
No homework! I will send a copy of the challenges discussed during class to their Outschool account.
1. 5 small portions of any food - bring 2 pieces of each food type (for example, 2 banana pieces, 2 cheese pieces, 2 pieces of lunch meat, 2 cookie pieces, etc.) 2. 4 Q-tips or a straw (for dipping and tasting) 3. lemon juice (we will use just a squirt) - orange juice or a very small amount of vinegar will also work 4. salt water (we will only need a small amount - about 25 ml to 50 ml) - make sure the salt is at least partially dissolved 5. sugar water (same directions as the salt water) 6. small piece of orange peel - anything bitter can be substituted (like a small amount of black tea or coffee) 7. This one is strange, but fun... 4 unlaundered (the dirtier the better!) pieces of clothing from family members (we will need to use clothing from at least 2 different family members) - for example 1 shirt from the student, 1 from a sibling and 2 shirts from a parent (or 1 from each) 8. 2 paper towels or a clean washcloth
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
