KILO: LET'S OBSERVE!

A Maui Digital Bus Virtual & Hybrid Project:

For Kindergarten, 1st,
and 2nd grades!
(This project will replace the "I Spy... Science" project)

Objective

Students will learn the importance of observing, while building observational techniques and fine motor skills through the use of binoculars, magnifying glasses, and microscopes.  Digital Bus videos will guide students through a three part virtual project.

Summary

Good observational skills are the basis for all disciplines regardless of complexity or age. Furthermore, the ability to observe a surrounding area, determine its important factors, and document and analyze findings are imperative for scientific studies. The Kilo: Let's Observe! project will introduce various equipment to students allowing them to gain a better understanding of the importance of observation. This project should be stepping stone for teachers to lead a variety of activities involving student observation skills.
