Jelly beans and smelly pots? Yes, it’s all here in a box that explores our senses. Students use their sense of smell to identify pairs of identical scents, and try to identify what the scents are. Links between smell and our long term memory are discussed. In the ‘taste tests’ students are blindfolded and asked to identify one of four flavours of jelly bean. This is harder than it sounds! Optical illusions look at the tricks our mind will play on what we think we see and lastly there is an experiment that measures the distance between touch receptors in our skin. Lots of real life contexts as well as practical numeracy activities.
