Was it more difficult to catch the ruler using one of the senses as compared to the other? Explain.
How could you use only the sense of smell to catch the ruler?
How could you use only the sense of taste to catch the ruler?
Explain how your senses, nerves, brain, and muscles in your fingers helped you to catch the ruler for one of the senses explored. Use pages 17-23 of your student reference book to help you.
It was a lot more difficult to do the touch because we always had early reactions because we knew right away because we could feel it, but it was easyer to do the sight because our eye reflexs seemed faster.
We would have a scented marker and when ever the other person held the marker in front of their nose and they smelled it they would try to catch the ruler.
We would have a peice of food and they would have their mouth open and we would put it in their mouth to taste and when they tasted that thing they would try to grab the ruler.
We first use one of our senses to detect the signal that our partner is giving us and then since we know that when we have that signal we should try to catch the ruler we then send that command through our nerves and to our brains and then our brain signals back through our nerves to our hand and tells our hand's muscles to grab the ruler.
