Student observing nature with magnifying glass

In this activity, students hone their observation skills and engage in science practices. Students will need a small nature object that they can hold in their hand. “I Notice” directs students to focus on the object’s details to help them articulate and remember what they are observing. “I Wonder” ignites curiosity as students ask questions about the details they are noticing. ”It Reminds Me Of” encourages students to make connections with personal experiences. Together, these prompts offer a practice that can be applied to learning and sparking curiosity.
