After watching each episode of Sid the Science Kid, we do the observation in the show and/or the activities presented on the Sid the Science Kid website.Today we watched the "What's That Smell" episode. For the observation, I placed familiar smells into jars. Princess smelled one jar at a time, blindfolded, and then she drew what she thought she smelled. She was right 3 out of 4 times. Pretty great observations!
Then Princess wanted me to do my own observations. I gave her four jars and let her loose in the kitchen. Then it was time for my observations. She put the first jar under my nose, but I couldn't smell anything. She put the second jar under my nose, again I smelled nothing. I smell nothing with the third jar as well. What is wrong with my nose? The fourth jar, finally, I smelled something! Toothpaste! But what was wrong with me? Why I couldn't smell the other jars?
After removing my blind fold, I understood.
Jar #1: play money
Jar #2: salt
Jar #3: water
Jar #4: toothpaste
