Senses Experiment in Jnr 1C

Today we had a really interesting activity linked with our senses.  The children were presented with a variety of containers with food stuff in them.  They were not told what was inside the container.  They had to use their senses (while blindfolded) to decide what was in each container.  Each child got to choose a container, and first touch the items, then smell it and finally taste it.  It was not easy as some children linked things that they do not like to the ‘yukky’ section.  Others tried hard to describe the ingredient in the container – it is soft or liquid, feels like crushed biscuits, is slippery etc… When it came to taste, some mentioned sweet and sour while others linked the taste to something they know ex. cocoa powder was linked to the hot chocolate drink.  A really enthusiastic class then had a final sample of all the ingredients without blindfold.  The favourite of the lot had to be the Nutella Chocolate which I must say all children guessed by smell.  Well done Children, it was lots of fun, now look at yourselves doing this activity.:-)

  1. It was great fun today helping you with the kids. Looking forward for more pictures. I would like to thank you very much for the dedication you have with our kids and keep it up. (Enrica’s mum)

    • Hi ‘MS PEDRA’, thanks to you all we managed a grt activity for the children. It wouldn’t have been such a success without your help. Many thanks for accepting my appeal.

  2. Hi Ms. Cynthia, I think today’s expreiment was a real hit with the kids! Kieran told me all about the many things they tasted (esp. Nutella of course!) as soon as he came back from school. And the photos you post give us a good insight of the enthusiasm of the class and what our children are up to during their time at school.
    Keep up the good work!

    • Yes the chn really enjoyed the senses experiment. It was enjoyable as well as had learning potential.
