Learning about Taste Buds - super clever idea for learning about the various things we taste with our tongue! Perfect for preschool, kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade kids in homeschool science
PT1:Sense of Taste Science Tongue Tasting preschool children explore the 4 major tastes that the tongue can sense; bitter, sweet, sour and salty. : Lemon wedges , , potato chips and unsweetened cocoa, a pitcher & cups (for lemonade), small paper plates, small spoons, unbreakable hand-held mirrors. Teachers should know that taste buds are grouped on the front, sides & back of the tongue. & that they are also in other parts of the mouth.
No series on the five senses would be complete without teaching on our sense of taste! Read a book with students and discuss how we taste with our tongue's taste buds and how the sense of smell is involved. Perform a fun activity and then use the downloadable worksheet as an assessment.
