Sense of Sight Watching Walk

Watching Walk- We created binoculars to help us on our watching walk.  We walked about our school to identify items with only our sense of sight.  When we came back to our classroom, we talked about what we saw.  We were even lucky enough to see the tortoises outside in their pen at the Science Center. 

After discussing all of the interesting things we saw, we created a chart.  To challenge the students a little further, we sorted what we saw into two catorgories (Alive and Not-Alive).  We talked about how things that are alive need to do three things:breath, grow, and eat.  It was tricky at times when we talked about leaves. We thought leaves could be both alive on a tree, but not alive when they are brown on the ground. It was a fun and interesting way to further our study of the five senses.
