• 1 PowerPoint with 11 unique images
• Differentiated handouts
1 At level Students Handout
1 Modified Student Handout
This product is specifically tailored to scaffold learning by following this sequence of instruction:
 Introduce observation, qualitative observation, quantitative observation and inference. Slides #2, #3 and #4.
 Examine an image and make both an observation and inference as a class. Students record class observation and inference. Slide #5
 Students focus on making good qualitative observations for images #2 and #3.
 Students focus on making good quantitative observations for images #4 and #5.
 Students focus on making good inferences for images #6 and #7. A key feature for inferences that they are based off of the observation so if the observation is about grass and the inference is about flowers then I discuss with students that the inference should be based on their observation.
 Images #8, #9 and #10 are for students to refine their observation and inference making skills. Sharing out of the observations and inferences along with a class discussion should occur in order to help students acquire a solid foundation.
 Image #11 is include to remind students that they should always question what they see in science and that this is crucial to being a good scientist.
