In science we read All About Your Tongue and students participated in a taste test with salty, sweet, sour and bitter. We tasted Fritos, sugar cubes, bittersweet chocolate and lemons. Students recorded their observations in their science notebook.
In social studies we read Corn is Maize by Aliki. Corn means grain and the Native Americans used corn for many things.
