- Peeps – you can use different colored and different shaped peeps if you’d like, but use whatever you have
- Peep Recording & Taste Test Sheet
- Pencil or Pen to write notes
- Print out or recreate the Peep Recording & Taste Test Sheet to write down your observations.
- Take a Peep, and start describing the peep’s qualities. Use all five of your senses to examine the peep, then write down how you described the peep in the chart. Close your eyes when you use your sense of touch or smell to help you really concentrate. You will want to use your sense of taste last or else you won’t be able to use the rest of your senses!
- After you discuss and write your observations, do a taste test and finish the corresponding worksheet. You can try different colored peeps if you have them to see if there are any differences between them!
We can’t wait to see your results! Don’t forget to send your photos of your results to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, April 5 to be entered into the drawing!
