Don't have time to plan an activity centered on observations? Do you have a lot of odd items lying around your classroom? If you said yes to any of those questions then this lesson plan and activity is for you.
This is an assessment where students demonstrate how skillful they are at making quantitative and qualitative observations. Student worksheets, support documents with sentence starters and vocabulary (definitely helpful for English Language Learners) and a rubric have been included. The lesson is designed so that students will learn to give and receive feedback. They will then use the feedback to improve their work in the second draft.
