Scientific Observation

In first grade enrichment this week we have continued observing seeds.  We are using our observation skills to play a fun game called PrestoChango, where students change one thing about themselves and then others try to detect the difference.   After we practiced our observation skills we applied them to looking at the exterior of a bean seed.  We also kept an eye on our growing beans....and came up with a lot of questions about why the beans were not growing at the same rates!  My favorite observation was when one student connected the plant cycle to the beans we are watching is just a seed, one has a small root, and one is starting to get a stem!  What a great transference of their background knowledge!
