Macon East Academy first grade students loved learning about their five senses in Mrs. Victoria Smith’s science class. The students did a blind taste test of salt and sugar to determine sweet and salty as well as other fun activities involving sight and touch. Mrs. Smith is in her first year teaching at Macon East, and her students enjoy how she makes hands-on learning fun. Their favorite experiment during the week included a popcorn treat! The first grade also made their own applesauce to celebrate Johnny Appleseed Day.
