Distinguishing and recognizing odors
Experimentation instructions for Experimento | 4+:
Can our nose distinguish various smells from each other? Can we recognize something from the smell alone?
Information and Ideas:
• The teacher/educator should collect things that have a particularly strong, characteristic smell, such as fruits, herbs, spices, and fresh wood.
Things with a very harsh smell like vinegar, or dangerous substances like gasoline should not be used. Children must not swallow any of the items collected.
• Please observe the general safety and hygiene measures and safety instructions in the respective teaching methods as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
