Taste buds are sensory organs that are found on your tongue and allow you to experience tastes that are sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. How exactly
do your taste buds work? Taste buds have very sensitive
microscopic hairs called microvilli. Those tiny hairs send
messages to the brain about how something tastes, so you know if it's sweet, sour,
bitter, or salty. Thank you to Ms. Hannah and the Prescholar Enrichment classes for teaching us all about our mouths and tongues!
