Miracle Berry

Topic: Creativity, cause & effect

This is a KS1 activity. In the 1960s, Robert Harvey, a biomedical postgraduate student, encountered the miracle berry, a fruit from West Africa which turns sour tastes to sweet.

In this activity children will investigate which foods are sour and which are sweet. They will discuss whether the miracle berry is a good thing and when it should be used.
