In Grade 1/2, we tasted some mystery liquids to find out what they were. Ms. King told us they were from her kitchen so we knew they were safe to taste. We know not to taste just any liquid and Ms. King is going to teach us about some safety symbols for non-food liquids. It did take us a few days to finish our experiment. We found out that some smelled disgusting. We recorded what each tasted like, what each smelled like, what it looked like and what it felt like. These are called observations when we use our senses. The mystery liquids were: vinegar, ketchup, molasses, water, BBQ sauce, corn syrup and cooking oil. We liked to taste them even if they tasted yucky. It was awesome. We weren’t always right with our guesses (called a hypothesis) but that’s okay because we changed our guesses as we gathered more information. We spilled a little which led to some questions about what works best to absorb the liquids. Ms. King says we can do an inquiry on what works best to clean up liquids.
