When my kiddos are in stations, I like to add a Science Exploring Station.
I put some random objects (acorns, rocks, leaves, bugs, flowers, marbles, etc.) in a tub along with some magnifying glasses.
I also put the Science Exploring Station recording sheet with it.
They first pick ONE object.
They draw what they see without using the magnifying glass, JUST THEIR EYES. (the whole object)
Then, they use the magnifying glass and draw what they see UP CLOSE.
It is a very fun thing for them to do and lets them independently explore objects like REAL SCIENTISTS!
