Students will learn about the different parts of the tongue and the muscles needed to make sounds like “k” and hard “g.” Students will place a finger on their tongues and try to speak. They’ll discuss what happens and why it may have been more difficult to speak. Next, students will go over different tastes, like sweet, bitter, and salty, and brainstorm some foods for each taste. For this activity, students spin a wheel and write a food choice for the taste they land on. Finally, they will learn about the myth of the tongue map theory.
