Eye Identify!
By Trista L. Pollard
  

1     What blinks and is your own video screen in your head? Your eyes, of course, and they are one of the five tools you use for observing your environment. To scientists, observing is a major beginning step to the exploration of scientific questions. When you observe objects or events in your environment, you use your five senses to identify properties, notice changes, and recognize similarities and differences. Each sense helps you to focus on specific details about those objects and events.
 
2     Seeing is believing and with your eyes you are able to notice properties such as size, shape, and color of objects. You are also able to notice how objects interact with each other. For example, when you sit in front of the fireplace on a cold winter night, you notice that the fire causes the wood to turn into ash. That is a chemical change because the ash cannot change back into its original form, the piece of wood.
 
3     Your ears allow you to detect properties of sound like loudness, pitch, and rhythm. While listening to music, you notice subtle changes in the speed of the music, the types of instruments that are being used, and specific beats that are representative of different cultures. When you touch objects, you not only discover their size and shape, but you also find out about their texture. For example, as you compare two different types of toilet tissue, you may notice that the texture of one type is softer than the other type. Using your sense of touch can help you to compare similarities and differences between objects.
