Developing Observation Skills
Ashbrook, Peggy
Science and Children, v48 n2 p22-23 Oct 2010
We typically know children are learning when they are able to make sense of an object's materials or a situation that was previously a bit mysterious and communicate what they have figured out. But what about observing? One of the process skills listed in the National Science Education Standards (NRC 1996), observation is something students have been practicing all their lives. The objective of this month's lesson is to have children make bubbles and observations about their shape.
