The purpose of Primary 1 Lesson 20: I Am Thankful that I Can Smell and Taste is to appreciate the senses of smell and taste.

End the lesson on the body with this My Body Spud Game from Latter-day Chatter.

Looking for more ideas or have questions? There is a great LDS Primary Teachers Private Group on Facebook.

These are always tough ones to find LDS.org resources for- I did, however, discover Heavenly Handouts which seems to have a lot of great ideas for Sunbeam classes. 

The following are LDS.org resources unless otherwise stated.
