Claims regarding the taste map of the tongue, published in 1901, are evaluated through planning and conducting experiments, processing, analysing and evaluating the data. Learning Intentions Students will be able to: • understand that the tongue is an organ with different specialised cells; • conduct experiments to determine the types of tastes which the tongue can sense; • investigate the claim that the taste buds on the tongue can be mapped to show different tastes associated with different regions; • make and record accurate observations; • identify patterns from observations; • evaluate the evidence gathered and compare this to the ‘tongue map’ claim; • understand that scientific knowledge changes as new evidence becomes available.
