Making Observations about Lemons

We made observations about lemons today! First we closely studied whole lemons. After a lengthy discussion, and BrainPop Jr. video about what an observation is and how to make one, we applied this knowledge to lemons. 

We drew pictures of our lemons, made predictions about whether or not they would float, then tested it (they do float). We described how they feel and smell, and we tasted them of course.
Tasting the lemons as a part of our observations was the most fun part. Check out our sour faces!

 We had a great time, wrote down terrific observations, and recorded what we observed. What great junior scientists we are turning out to be!
