Another big day in kindergarten. We are starting a unit on the 5 senses, and today we talked about taste. I brought in 4 different types of food: marshmallows, dill pickles, unsweetened chocolate, and pretzels. We determined through a taste test which foods were salty, sweet, bitter, and sour. Then, we looked through a magazine and glued pictures that would use our sense of taste to a piece of paper. It made us hungry for lunch.
In the afternoon, we had our study buddies come and make place mats with us. Next week, we will be making a soup, and they will need place mats for the soups. Also, this was a great way to learn about weaving.
We also had another big surprise in the afternoon: Popsicles!! To celebrate the end of American Education Week, the whole school was treated to a Popsicle. After all, school is cool!
