Explain how spices are used to make foods taste differently. Explore several different spices with a magnifying glass or microscope to discover the different properties. Talk about how some are crystals (salt, sugar, etc), leaves, powder, flakes, etc. Talk about the different smells/tastes and what different foods the spices are used in. You can even compare the different amounts of spices needed to season things (potency).
