Experience with Tasting




No special material is needed.


1) To make the child more aware of taste
2) To make the child intelligently observant
3) To help develop ability to make finer discriminations


For snack or meals the teacher can help children become consciously 
aware of taste. The teacher should make sure to present only
things that have a pleasant taste. It is interesting to
present things that have very subtle tastes. For example, children will
enjoy comparing the tastes of a variety of apples (delicious,
Jonathan, Pippin, Macintosh, etc.), melons (cantaloupe, honeydew,
Crenshaw, watermelon, etc.), grapes (red, green, purple), or cheeses
(cheddar, Jack, string, gouda, etc.).
