Post RE : Smell affects Food Project

First of all, great job for wanting to help you child! Second, i would take a food pyramid and divide it into sections and subsections. For example-
Grain-
Cereal
Rice
Bread
Meat-
Red Meat
White Meat
Eggs
Nuts
ETC>

I would pick at least 1 food from every subsection. Then, i would pick at least 10 children. You may want to never your son's experiment down like so-

How does smell affect 4th graders

How does smell affect 4th grade males/ females

This will cut down the need of subjects. I would then have each child smell a food item first and try to guess what it is. Then, have them taste it and guess what it is.

I hope your son's experiment goes well and he keeps up a love for science. Good luck!
