Sweet Dreams

Topic: Animals including humans

This is a KS1 activity. Research has shown that sweet smells can bring sweet dreams and nasty smells, like rotten eggs, have given unpleasant dreams. Work suggests, sleep with flowers in your bedroom if you want sweet dreams. When the smell of roses had been wafted under the noses of slumbering volunteers they reported experiencing pleasant emotions in their dreams.

In this activity children will use interpreting smells, group discussion and interaction to come to conclusions about our sense of smell.
