Check out this simple and student friendly template that students can use to facilitate their scientific investigations. Separated into give clear sections with labels and visuals, students can explore any item with their five senses. This is a great way to develop students' abilities to investigate and explore. Implementing this with some sort of candy treat like Nerds is a great way to have fun while learning and allow for components of sound like and taste like, when alternatives may not be possible. Have fun!
