This month we will do lots of fun experiments to understand our senses, taste, smell and touch. We will see that the mouth is considered as the door through which food enters our bodies, the tongue is responsible for testing and to tell us what they taste like and if we like them or not. The teeth are our friends who are in charge of biting and our grinders of chewing and crush the food in order to swallow it so it does not get stuck in our throats.
We will play to identify different flavors; sweet, sour, bitter and salty tasting everyday many foods, also smell and identify the ones we like and the unpleasant ones, strong and soft and where do they come from.
The teachers and children will go over the food pyramid and classify the food from each group (fruits,vegetables, grains, meats and dairy) taste, smell, size and we will learn the importance of healthy foods and how to keep our bodies healthy so it can grow strong.
These are some of the activities that we will be doing this month and here is how you can help me…
During the entire month we will be experimenting and therefore we will get really dirty and wet, so please send me a change of clothes everyday and and extra diaper (everything should be labeled with my name) so I can get wet and do not have to worry.
