Reflection: Lesson Planning Tasty Tasty Trials - Section 1: Engage


When planning lessons, think about the personality of your class and what grabs their attention. For this group and this lesson, I chose to read, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This book is colorful, exciting and on topic for taste. 

The other reason for choosing this book is the rich discussions that can be had about the variety of food eaten by the caterpillar. Always choose a book that's right for your class.

Tasty Tasty Trials

Unit 1: Getting Started (Frontloading Science)
Lesson 7 of 9

Objective: SWBAT understand the structure and function of the tongue by tasting 5 different types of objects when warranted.

Big Idea: Young children do not often come equipped and ready to use their sense of taste in order to gain insight into topics. This lesson encourages them to use what they already know to identify things they taste.
