Neuroscience for Kids: Taste Gustation
In this activity (2nd activity on the page), learners explore how the nose is responsible for part of the flavor we taste in food. One learner is blindfolded and holds her nose as she tastes an apple or pear slice. The learner is challenged to identify the mystery food. This activity can be conducted with baby foods or flavored jelly beans as well, which are all the same texture.
