Science Notebooks

 I have blogged a few times about how I have started using Science Notebooks in my classroom. Here are some of the things we have been investigating and recording in our notebooks. 

Grass Investigation

I observed_______.
I noticed________.

This was a simple planting lesson. We planted grass seeds in clear cups. The kids loved seeing how the grass is growing in the middle of the cup with white roots.

 I observed some are long, and some are short.
 I observed it has a little part of the grass, and it has some roots.

  1. I like the way you do your science journals. I really enjoyed listening to your kids read their journal pages. Awesome job!

  2. Hi Melissa!
    Love the Science Notebooks! It doesn't look like EDCO is offering that workshop this summer. Watch for it in the fall. What did you use to record their voices? That's terrific!
