Kindergarten Science.... Taste

For Ryleigh's Kindergarten the last couple of days we have been working through the 5 senses (1 sense a day)... Here is a fun (quick) experiment/ lesson that we did. I took little cups and filled them with: salt water, sugar water, lemon water, unsweetened cocoa, and cocoa with sugar mixed in.... Braeden also partook in the lesson.... that is why there are so many cups! They did not know what they were tasting beforehand. By the end we had discussed: sweet, sour, salty and bitter.
 Ryleigh taking a sip of the salty I think...
 Hilarious! And by that... I mean for me....
 Braeden didn't like the taste either...
There were lots of giggles during this lesson... and I believe Braeden laughed so hard he got hiccups and tears... which made Ryleigh laugh equally hard.
 Overall, Ryleigh liked the experiment... but was not interested in repeat tasting... 
To see what others are up to this week, check out:

Fun! Isaac would have absolutely hated doing this though. It would have been tears for us! Love looking at your kids pics though :)

That's always a fun experiment to do and lesson to teach. In fact, our next silly school song will be of the 5 senses.

I haven't done this lesson yet with my 4 year old but my 7 year old did it a few yrs ago and loved it...mostly because she loves to eat regardless...LOL
