Product Details

Student interest is always high when the topic of study is their own human body. Students become the test organism as they perform a series of experiments using their own senses. Taste, smell, hearing, sight and touch are all explored in a series of fun, safe activities. Students will be amazed when they determine their dominant eye, find their blind spot, are unable to sense things on their skin and are not able to taste some common food items. The series of experiments in this kit are an excellent introduction to the study of the sense organs of the human body.

Food items will need to be provided locally.
