Peek In Our Week*** Thee Buckeye Room*** Week Of January 29, 2024

The Buckeye Bulletin

Line Time:

This week learned a bit more about our body. We went over the five senses. We learned that we can use our sense of touch not only with our fingers but any part of the body. Have you ever stepped on a Lego in bare feet. An electrical impulse travels from your foot to your brain and your brain tells you it hurts. Our sense of hearing is through our ears. Sound waves travel through the air and are caught by our ears, then travel down the ear canal hitting our ear drum. The ear drum vibrates and the brain interprets what we are hearing. Sight is used with our eyes. Light reflects and travels until caught by our eyes. Then the brain tells us what we are seeing. We smell trough our nose. Particles travel through the air and end up in our nose captured by little hairs called cilia. The hairs send an electrical impulse to, you guessed it, the brain. The brain tells us what we are smelling. We taste with our tongue and the food particles come in contact with our taste buds. The the taste buds tell the brain if the taste is sour, sweet, salty, or bitter. I gave the students salt water, sugar water, lemon juice, and unsweetened baking chocolate. Take a look at the pictures below. Some students liked the sour and some didn’t. Why you may ask? Because everyone’s brain is different and interprets the taste differently from some someone else’s brain.

Wall of Disgust and Fun:

Did You Know?:

Identical twins don’t have the same fingerprints. You can’t blame your crimes on your twin, after all. This is because environmental factors in the womb such as (umbilical cord length, position in the womb, and the rate of finger growth) impact your fingerprint.
