Smell Human senses - smell

Fact file


Can you recognise a smell if you cannot see where the smell is coming from? Test this by collecting a range of smelly objects. Put them in boxes, so you cannot see them. Poke holes in the tops of the boxes and have a sniff. Record what you smell, and when you've finished, lift the lids on your boxes - were you right?
Some smell ideas: roses, vanilla, orange peels, bananas, cut grass, chocolate, onions...

Test your senses!
