How Are Observations Made? An observation is the act of noting something in your environment using the five senses: touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell. In science, we generally do not want to smell and taste things, especially in the laboratory! tp://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Wogx5HqhL68/ScQ8pve_ECI/AAAAAAAACC8/iK_o63JcZc0/s400/5-senses.jpg

Food for Thought… As we continue learning about the Nature of Science and Scientific Inquiry, chew on these tasty tidbits: 1.) How is an observation different from an inference? 2.) How can observations and inferences be used when formulating a scientific question? 3). How do observations and inferences help the scientific community establish laws and theories, such as the Theory of Evolution and the Law of Gravity?
