Jelly Bean Taste Test {work on vocab, predictions, & more!}

My kids were so pumped to do this activity! So was I! I have a soft spot for jelly beans. After this activity – I probably literally have a soft spot because I ate so many! Last year, I literally had to put my bag of jelly beans on top of a cabinet so I couldn’t get into it easily. I know. My self control is impressive, right.  I can’t help it – they are so addicting! This activity is great to work on making predictions, building adjective vocabulary, and group work skills! And this download is free! 🙂 

I also think tasting new food is a great sensory activity for some of our more sensitive students!

I got four types of “jelly beans” – I had to get a little creative to include a range of flavor types! I bought starburst, starburst sour, hot tamales, and chocolate eggs. Then I put small groups on a paper plate. I made little dividers with colored masking tape so they didn’t go running all over the plate!

This packet includes four pages. I wanted to work on adjectives, inferences, compare/contrast, and comprehension!

  1. Fun activity! Can’t wait to try it! PS… I gave my jelly beans to my para to lock in their cabinet so I wouldn’t eat them!! I’m addicted to the Starburst tropical ones!
