This past week we continued our unit on the five senses by focusing on our senses of smell and taste. We read Stone Soup retold by Heather Forrest and discussed what ingredients we would add to the soup.
The children had an opportunity to smell and comment on what they smelled in different scent containers in the Science Center. We continued this discussion at circle by talking about what things have good smells versus bad smells.
The children discussed how certain foods at our meal times tasted (crunchy, sticky, juicy, salty, sweet, sour). They explained why they liked or disliked something that they ate.
Next week we continue with the sense of touch.
