Product Description
Want to do a cooking activity in your classroom but don't know what to cook? Look no more! This is a great activity that is perfect for even the pickiest of eaters and actually involves no cooking at all!

I love doing food tasting activities with my students with disabilities (and I think they love it even more than I do!) and it is now my go to plan for my "Friday Fun" afternoons. There is something about trying small quantities of different kinds of food that somehow always are more exciting to them than just cooking one item.

There are 9 worksheets each with a different red food. There are worksheets made for an apple, grapefruit, red pepper, raspberry, tomato, fruit snack, red skittle, red sour patch kid and red swedish fish candy. On each worksheet, it goes through the senses asking how it looks, feels, smells and tastes.

There is a mix of both healthy and unhealthy foods and when I do the activity, I will generally do a fruit or vegetable sheet and alternate it with the candy sheets (avoiding the students from becoming disinterested just because they immediately see a lot of "healthy foods").

Additionally, there is a "healthy and unhealthy" picture sort activity page to do with the students after they complete the food tasting portion of the activity. They simply cut out the pictures of the foods they just tried and sort them into the appropriate category. They are great to hang up on the wall afterwards and great conversation starters for future food activities.

I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do!
