Qualitative and Quantitative observations are two different things. Qualitative observations are things you notice with your 5 senses like how something feels or smells. Quantitative observations are things you can measure like how much rain we had or what was the average temperature for the month.
This is the order of the scientific method. The first step is to find a problem, one that can be made into a testable question. The next step is to form a hypothesis. A hypothesis is a conclusion you made with the testable question you created. An experiment follows the hypothesis and testable question. The experiment determines the data that is recorded and analyzed. This data is used to make a conclusion on whether the hypothesis is correct. After these steps, you repeat a few times to make sure the information is reliable.
