What do scientists do? They observe closely. They ask questions. They use their 5 senses to make meaning of what they see.
On our nature walk today, a student found a small leaf with something “squishy” stuck on it. A conversation broke out between many of his classmates as they tried to figure out what it was. A worm? A ladybug? Was it still alive? The students couldn’t see any feet so they determined that it was an animal that would either roll on the ground or maybe it would develop wings when it became an “adult”.
