This form allows students to record observations they make about the physical properties of two different objects. Properties include color, texture, odor, size, hardness, mass, shape, and attraction to magnets.
Students can select the two objects from a group of objects that you provide, they can bring two objects from home, they can choose any two objects in the room, or they can make observations about two specific objects you have chosen for them.
This lab provides opportunities for practice with multiple science tools including a hand lens, ruler, balance, and magnet. Students also make observations using their senses.
The two column format also allows for easy side-by-side comparison between the observed properties of the two objects.
