Exploring Your Sense of Smell. Science Study Aid No. 10.
Boeschen, John; And Others
This Science Study Aid (SSA), structured for grade levels 7-9, is based on work of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) conducted at the Western Regional Research Center in Berkeley, California. It is concerned with food aroma, its intensity and character, and olfactory threshold determinations. The SSA provides students with background information to help understand the importance of determining odor preferences and olfactory thresholds. There are three investigations for the student entitled: Fruit Flies and Bananas, Preference Testing, and Olfactory Threshold Determination. In the section entitled To the Teacher, suggestions are provided for each of the investigations to facilitate classroom use. Included are: Materials Lists, Directions for Preparing Solutions, and Suggested Readings and Films. (BT)
