Scientists at Work!
We are scientists! Students went outside to use their five senses to collect information about their surroundings. They drew pictures, discussed with their friends, and then described in their journals what they saw, smelled, heard, and touched. No tasting...at least not for this lesson. The next lesson was for students to describe all sorts of items and compare/contrast them. Students are learning about properties (size, weight, color, temperature, and texture) and how to sort objects by different properties. Ask your scientist what two objects he/she recorded in their science journal last week.
