To find out answers to this question we used the science inquiry cycle. First we formed a hypothesis in groups and gave a reason for our thinking. Then we noted our method for the experiment which was to taste different colours of drinks and guess their flavour. After tasting them we found out some of the drinks had food colouring added to them. Many of us thought the red drink was strawberry or watermelon flavour, but it was actually lime. The purple one could have been blueberry or grape, but it was just plain water! We concluded that our eyes give us an idea of what tastes are because they send a message to our brain.
To inquire more into the question do sight and taste work together we did another experiment which involved tasting jelly beans while wearing a blindfold. It was hard to guess some of the flavours, although the orange and lemon ones were easier. We thought this was because they are tastes that we know, where as tutti fruiti and island punch are not tastes that we know.
