- The apple smells fruity and sweet as if it was picked from an apple orchard just now.
- I notice that there are two little holes inside of the apple, which is where the seeds go. I notice that it is green where the hole is.
- On the skin, it is almost rubbery and rough, but on the other side, it is slippery and smooth.
- There is a brown line going down the inside of the apple, which is in the middle
- On the red side(the skin) the smell of the apple is less strong and doesn't smell that fruity. But on the other side, it is really strong, just like I described in the first observation.
- There are little fuzzy fur balls inside the middle of the apple, in the hole that the seeds go.
- There are light, tiny dots on the skin of the apple. They have little dents and are all over the place.
- There is a hole by the stem and it is light greenish and fuzzy.
- Why were you able to observe so many things about your apple today?
- Why is observation and description so important in science?
- Rank order the five senses in the order or your observations (i.e. which sense was used most, second most, etc.).
Observation and Description is so important in science because if you didn't observe anything, you wouldn't be able to learn more about it. If you don't even see, hear, smell and touch it, you won't learn anything at all. Description is important because if you didn't describe what you observed, no one will be able to understand it or learn with you.
In order from used most with the apple to least used with the apple, the senses are: Sight I used most, Touch I used second most, Smell third most, Hear I didn't use at all, actually.
