Hi Kestrels! Today in our Science lesson we will be observing... We observe when we use one or more of our senses to find out about objects, events, or living things. An observation is a fact learned directly through the senses. Scientists learn about living and nonliving things through observation. Scientists use many different kinds of tools. A tool is an object used to do work. A magnifying glass is a tool. If you don't have a magnifying glass, use a tablet or phone to take a photo and zoooooooooom in! 1. Observe your rock. Use a magnifying rock to observe the small details. 2. Take a picture of your rock. 3. Use the drawing and labeling tools to label the properties of the rock (color, texture, weight, size, etc). 4. Record your voice describing your rock.
