Investigating - Observation Skills
If you want to observe and investigate something you will have to look at it very carefully.

Investigating - Observation Skills

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with investigating and the skills of observation.

Science is all about investigating and finding out. When investigating you have to look at things very carefully. You see what things look like. You see how things change. You watch to see if things stay the same. When we look at things very carefully we use our observation skills. This quiz is all about observing. How good are your observation skills?
