Observation Skills in Science

We have been learning to observe different phenomena (happenings or things).  To be successful we had to use our senses (hear, see, touch and smell).  We all decided that 'taste' isn't a safe sense to use in some parts of science so we only use that sense if Miss Fortes tells us too.

We looked at a paper glider made with a straw and paper.  We had to observe this glider.

Miss Fortes said great observers get out of their seats and move around and observe from all possible angles.

When we looked closely we saw that the straw was smooth, 23 cm long and the paper had sellotape holding it on.
