Taste (Key Stage Two)
From the Chilled Food Association, this resource helps children to think about how they taste food and find out about the work of a taste scientist. The materials are aimed at STEM ambassadors or company personnel giving a talk in a primary school. However, they can be adapted for use by teachers in the classroom.
The materials consist of a lesson plan, stimulus materials and suggested activities. They will help children to:
• say what a sensory scientist does
• be able to name the five basic tastes and give examples of them
• know the parts of the body used to taste
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
