Developed for third grade. The students will be given an introduction to tastebuds, focusing on the different types of tastebuds, what they taste, and where they are located on the tongue. They will do this by sampling four different tastes (lemon - sour, sugar - sweet, salt - salty, and tonic water - bitter) and determining which can be tasted the best in what areas of the tongue. Given a diagram that maps out the main regions of the tongue, the students will indicate which area is designated f
