Science Notebook Corner

With video-based instruction, examples of student notebooks, and ready-to-use materials, this toolkit from the California Academy of Sciences presents everything educators need to know about using science notebooks with K–12 students. Topics address Setting Up Your Science Notebook, Strategies for Investigation (e.g., using notebooks in hands-on science explorations), Strategies for Notetaking (e.g., concept maps, active reading strategies, brainstorming tips, and other ideas to support students as they make meaning from science explorations), and Strategies for Reflection (e.g., ideas for using notebooks to help students recognize their own learning). The videos and notebook examples were created in upper-elementary classrooms, but the strategies and activities presented can be adapted for use with any level.
