- The apple is Red and a little orange and yellow, and there is green in the inside
- The smell smells pretty good, if you were to smell an apple that is what it would smell like so it smells like an apple
- It is smooth and bumpy on the outside and slimy and wet on the inside
- When I bang the apple (not very hard) on the table then it sounds like a hard ball bouncing on the table it sounds like that and a little crunching sound too, when I squish it a little bit but not hard I hear some more crunching sound
- I found 3 holes on the bottom of the apple and one of them is pretty big so I think a worm went through it
- When I put a hole through the apple there are some bubbles that come up every time I put the toothpick through it
- The bottom of the apple is green and brown
- I found 5 or 6 seeds in the apple
- The taste of it was good but I couldn’t taste it but I just know how good it taste
1. Why were you able to observe so many things about your apple today?
2. Why is observation and description so important in science?
3. Rank order the five senses in the order or your observations (i.e. which sense was used most, second most, etc
1. I was able to observe so many things because I was experimenting with the apple. I was using my toothpick to make holes in it and look at all the interesting features of the apple.
2. The observation and descriptions are so important because without them we couldn't describe anything. The observations are so important because if we didn't have them, then we wouldn't find out anything new or really look carefully at the apple to find out new things we haven't found out before.
3. I put my senses in order from: Sight, to touch, to hear, to smell, to taste. I put them in order from most used to least used, I put taste last because we couldn't eat or taste the apple.
