Here is a quick look at my Kindergarten Science Notebooks. At the beginning of the year we talk about what it means to be a scientist. An easy way to introduce this is with Deanna Jump's freebie on TPT "What Do Scientists Do?"
Before school starts I buy 11 composition notebooks (20 cents a piece in July & August). Then, I ask my dad to saw them in half for me. The first time I asked him to do this... he thought I was crazy!! But after agreeing and doing it--- He thought it was the neatest thing-- and it is! For those of you who do not have men in your lives with electric saws, I've been told Lowe's will do it for free.
I add a label to the front with each child's name on it, and a cute scientist clip art (of course). We use these as much as time allows! My kids love to think of themselves as scientist and observers.
Here are a few pictures of my kids observations from our science notebooks:
Here is our 5 senses anchor chart we made together. In response to their learning they labeled a di-cut in their science notebooks.
Here is our life cycle of a pumpkin. I also made an anchor chart for this one... but no picture. Sorry!
After reading Stellaluna, we wrote in our Science notebooks. I love my friends' sentence, "Bats are cool."
We discussed living and non-living. This was a quick way for me to check their learning.
This week in Science we are starting Magnets! Come stop by later this week for some Magnet Downloads.
I just love his paperclips!!! haha
She said, "A magnet is a thing that sticks." I love her spelling-- she was taking her time sounding it out today!
These are just a few pictures, but I hope they gave you some inspiration! Happy Monday!!!
