The Private Eye

Focus on close scientific observation, descriptive language, drawing, and poetic writing using The Private Eye materials. Use a jeweler’s loupe to look at your fingerprint and at natural materials. Draw what you see, and begin a sandwich poem using your observations.

This activity connects primarily to the visual arts, language arts, and science curricula.
