Get your students actively involved in learning! This quick project puts students in charge of teaching each other in an engaging way by becoming experts on a specific sense. Here's what some of my students did:
*The group teaching about gustation put the absolute threshold to the test by putting just the right amount of sugar in a gallon of water.
*The student team teaching the class about olfaction challenged classmates to taste test different types of gum while blindfolded and holding their noses--demonstrating the connection between olfaction and gustation.
