Observations • recognizing and noting some FACT to gather information about the world
You make observations using your five senses • Sight - Detects color, size, and shape. • Hearing - Reaction to moving air • Taste - Sweet, salty, bitter, sour. • Smell - Reaction to gases. • Touch - Reaction to pressure, temperature. • We are not sensitive enough to detect high sounds or radio waves.
Observations must be specific and accurate, not relative, so that it means the same to everyone. • Example: • Incorrect - the burning bag smelled nasty • Correct - the burning bag smelled similar to rotten eggs
Inference • a possible explanation or guess about an observation • Example: you leave the movie theater and see the ground is wet so you infer that it rained.
Look at the picture below and write three observations and two inferences
Mr. Peanut • Wait for directions • When making observations be as specific as possible!
