We learned our new science song today. We read a book about our 5 senses. We did a little experiment using our sense of smell. Several students had to close their eyes and use their sense of smell to try to figure out what the hidden object in my hand was. Students were able to identify the "minty" smell of the peppermint candy in my hand. We talked about how you can use one of your senses or a combination of different senses at one time. Students thought it was fun to partner up and take a closer look at the tiny little dots (taste buds) on their tongue that they use for their sense of taste. We will learn more about this science topic a little later with a few more "in-depth" experiments.
