All Scream For Ice-Cream

All Scream For Ice-Cream is a 3-page lesson pack for Grade 3 about the tongue, its structure and functions. In simple language, the text reviews what children know already, and adds new facts. Text and word activities follow.

The Tongue And What It Does

Children know they like ice-cream but may not know they like it so much. Students read about the tough fibre of the tongue and how it is hitched to the body. Children can answer some questions through discussion as well as write. There are some new words, such as bitter, sour, taste buds and saliva. Students will enjoy the simple practical tasks. A self-assessment is included at the end.
