Object Observation

  1. Provide a container filled with various objects that students can look at closely. This will help them learn to be careful and accurate when observing.
  2. Have a form available where they can record their observations. Include a list of properties for them to notice: smell, texture, color, weight, etc.
  3. Have a place for them to include a scientific drawing.
