Your task, supported by your parents, is to explore how humans gather information using our senses. If you want to send a video to the robot to help him understand then please use the home learning email.
Grown ups you can help this investigate by:
- taste: identifying the fruit from a blind taste test?; choosing a favourite crisp flavour from a blind taste; tasting a potato then an apple whilst pinching their nose, can they tell the difference? - smell: which smell would make the best perfume and why?; which smell is the most relaxing for a bubble bath or lavender bag / which fragrances are linked to relaxing? - design a fragrance bag to put under their pillow to help them get to sleep; what do different herbs smell like?; which herbs should we grow in our school plot / class window sill / to take home?; sort different smells into nice and nasty smells. - touch: feely bags/bowls – are our feet better at guessing the object or our hands?; walk on different surfaces, which would make the nicest lining for a new pair of slippers?
