What’s for Lunch?

Ever wonder what your food taste like? That was the question our kinders had to answer for last week’s science activity. Since we are doing science, “yummy” is not an acceptable answer. What we want is for the kids to learn to describe the taste of their food using our four basic kinds of flavors i.e. sweet, sour, salty and bitter.

Most importantly, we wanted the kids to learn how to describe what happens when the food enters their mouth and how does their brain recognize which taste it is. Further, we also wanted the kids to learn which parts of their tongue work to signal their brain if the food they are eating are sweet, sour, salty or bitter.

The science activity was extended during lunch time. What seems to be an ordinary lunch can be a good source of a fun learning science activity as the kids started to sort the flavors of their food in their obento. One kid said, “Oh! My chicken is salty!” Then another kid asked, “How about broccoli, what does it taste like?”
