The children will learn about the sense of smell, and try to differentiate between various smells. Children enjoy so much when you bring common items like spices to smell or taste into the classroom.  It is important to wake up the children’s senses in a way that they focus on using one sense at a time.  First smell the spices, then taste the spices.  Encourage children to express verbally or non verbally what they are sensing.
