Gather several different tools that help us see things in a new way. Some examples are eyeglasses, a magnifying glass, a clear glass filled with water, and a magnifying mirror. Select an object like a toy or leaf to observe. 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.
