Reviewer Comments:

This activity is suitable for elementary students and provides a clear structure for students to practice observation skills using four of their five senses. This activity is simple, but effective, and may be used in a variety of contexts to help kids become more descriptive observers.

Homework Activity: I created a table with 4 colums, with the headings: object, observation, Qualititative, Quantitative. I made 10 rows plus the row for the headings. Before the table, I wrote what was a qualititive an observation and what was a quantitative observation. I reminded students that they could only pick 1 food item, and that was the only item they were allowed to taste. Students had to make 5 of each type of observation from objects in the home or neighborhood. They had to put a "check" sign in the appropriate colum indicating what type of observation they had made for each item. Thank you for your inspiration!
