Using simple activities and working in teams, students study the relationship of smell to taste and how closely tied they are to each other. They then locate and 'map' as well as identify, the areas of the tongue which detect the taste sensations of sweet, salty, bitter and sour. They discover that all taste buds are not sensitive to the same taste.

Includes:  This kit consists of two complete student investigations, with additional activities suggested in the Teacher's manual. A teacher must provide a fresh apple, potato and onion for the first investigation.
