– Two sets of four bottles with droppers, each containing one of the four fundamental tastes:
* Salty: salt and water
* Sweet: sugar and water
* Bitter: tonic water
* Sour: lemon and water
– One set has tops with one color and the other set has tops with a different color. (Or a label to distinguish one set from another.) These two sets form pairs.
– Four small glasses of water, two for each person.
– Two spoons, one for each person.
To realize that there are only four fundamental tastes.
The game develops awareness of the close relationship between taste and smell.
The objective of the exercise is to match four fundamental taste types: salty, sweet, bitter and sour. Each bottle in the first set should make a taste pair with a bottle in the second set. Bottle sets can be distinguished by placing labels on them.
