Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge First Steps in the Scientific Method - Section 1: Hook - Careful Observations


This video clip, The Devil Is In The Details explains why I place such value on my students taking the time to make careful observations in the lab.  The activity itself is not related to the Biology curriculum, but the lesson of slowing down the discovery process to analyze the situation/data and formulate keen observations is a skill that will be useful as we progress through this course.
