  • Resource Overview

    A fun and engaging sensory activity to help students connect sensory properties to foods.

    This resource was created to help life skills students describe the sensory properties of food items. This task allows students to examine a range of foods provided by the teacher. Students then describe them according to their sensory experience.

    Students have the opportunity to draw and annotate these products to help develop critical and creative thinking skills. There is a word bank included to inspire students and introduce them to descriptive words that can be applied to the senses.

    This resource can be extended and/or differentiated at the teachers’ discretion to meet the individual needs of their students.

    Please note – The students do not eat these foods they will just be predicting taste or recalling taste from a previous experience unless instructed otherwise by the teacher.
