(Experimento: Un paseo por los olores)

How many smells you can recognize.

  • A friend or two
  • A notebook
  • A pencil or pen

  1. Plan a walk and take your notebook, pen, or pencil. Your stroll could be inside or outside, maybe around your house or school.
  2. As you walk, write down all the smells you and your friend find. How many smells did you smell? Which was the best one? Which was the worst one?
