Students explore the sense of taste. In this biology lesson plan, students consider 4 types of tastes, recognize the papillae or receptors on the tongue, and locate and label the different taste sense organs on the tongue.
First graders identify the four taste sensations: salty, sweet, sour and bitter. They recognize the papillae or receptors on the tongue and locate and label the different taste sense organs on the tongue.
Learners explore their 5 senses. In this 5 senses lesson, students participate in activities that require them to use the senses of smell, touch, hearing, taste, and sight.
Students explore their five senses. They watch, smell and listen as the teacher pops the popcorn. They talk about how popcorn looks like blossoms on blooming apricot trees. They name and point to the parts of their body that help them do things.

Mmmmmmm, here is a tasty little slide show to use when introducing upper-elementary learners to the sense of taste. Photographs and detailed computer images accompany explanatory text about how the taste buds and the nose send signals to the brain to help us sense taste. This is ideal for supporting the fourth grade Next Generation Science Standards in life science.
Students explore how to use their sense to draw conclusions. In this human biology lesson, students use their senses to observe various objects in learning centers. The centers include tasting salt, touching sandpaper, hearing bells and smelling oranges. A student worksheet is included.
Students identify the five senses. In this senses lesson plan, students listen to a story about the five senses and discuss what each sense is. Students explore the five sense with popcorn. Students also practice the letter S, the number 5, ovals, and the color brown.
Students recognize how each of the five senses works and define the related terminology. They compare and contrast the means by which the senses gather information about the world. In addition, they research how an assigned sense works and will create a labeled picture that illustrates this process.
Fifth graders apply their knowledge of the five senses to create descriptive writing pieces.  In this descriptive writing lesson, 5th graders observe as the teacher models how she adds in details and adjectives into her existing piece of writing.  Students then go to work on adding details and adjectives into their writing. 
Students consider the difficulties of adapting to the loss of different senses. They work in small groups, each developing a fictional superhero who experiences a loss of one of sense and must compensate for it with his or her other senses.
Students taste sugar, lemon, salt, and tonic water, and identify which areas of their tongue tastes different tastes. In this taste lesson plan, students then create a tongue map.
