To guide this process, we can provide our children with space, time, tools, and the resources they need. Keeping track of his observations in a notebook is the beginning of a lifelong recording habit, and essential to the scientist.
These free science experiment notebooking pages from Notebooking Nook provide inspiration and space to record many different types of experiments, observations and reflections. This nicely done 17-page download includes:
- a Science Experiment Notebook cover sheet,
- an experiment (question, hypothesis, procedure, experiment, results, conclusion) sheet,
- two simpler experiment sheets (what is the question I am trying to answer, what I think will happen, what I learned) — one with drawing space, and
- assorted blank pages with space for drawing or journaling results and observations.
