Observational skills are key to science exploration. This unit gives students an introduction to how we use our senses to explore the world. A very important skill to becoming a successful scientist.
In this unit students will dive deep and explore one sense at a time. I recommended exploring one sense at a time, each on a different day. A great way to introduce this unit is to talk about how we experience the world.
