The Scientific Method - Make Observations

Observing the stars and planets.

Observing the world around you is an important first step in the scientific method. As you make observations, you may begin to ask questions about those observations. You may see clouds form overhead, see the lightning, hear the thunder, and then feel the cold rain, but how do the clouds form and why does rain fall from them?

An example...

Betsy sees that she has a shadow. She has also noticed that her shadow will disappear at times, and even change shape. The trees, shrubs, and even nearby rocks also seem to have shadows. These are all important observations.
