Notice and Wonder

Gather several different tools that help you see things in a new way. Some examples are eyeglasses, a magnifying glass, a clear glass filled with water and a magnifying mirror. Then select an object like a toy or leaf to observe and write down some things you observe about the item.

  • Is the item smooth or textured?
  • What details can you see?

Now, use each tool to observe the item.

  • Does anything new stand out that you didn’t see before?
  • Do the tools help you see better or worse?

Write down or draw your new observations in your journal or on this helpful observation chart.
