A Freebie From JFeliciano

If you're new to notebooking, you'll discover that science is a great topic to begin with. Because science is so broad and lends itself to a variety of methods of expression such as charts, diagrams, paragraphs, and photos, it's perfect for notebooking. Read on for more ways to jump into science notebooking. If you've already been using notebooking as a learning tool for science, you may find here some new printables to use or discover some ways to hone your notebooking to gain the greatest educational impact. The last thing we want is busy work for our children. Make your notebooking count by implementing sound instructional practices. Science Notebooks are a tool for the student to organize thoughts, consider possibilities, and record observations. For the teacher or parent, the science notebook is a way to assess understanding and to create a portfolio that can serve you well in homeschool evaluations.

And real scientists use laboratory notebooks regularly in their daily work. In this photo, my daughter is drawing a diagram of the lever she just constructed. You can see her living book open in front of her. There is a lot of learning going on there. Science notebooking is a great introduction to the scientific logs and lab reports that professional scientists use. Read what Eve Heaton, a public elementary school teacher, says about science notebooking. She lists many positive qualities of using notebooking along with your science curriculum. Her blog is a wealth of resources for science notebooking. I love how she makes it very, very practical and includes lots of photos. Notebooking is extremely versatile. Anything that can physically be put into a notebook and deals with your topic is a possibility. If something isn't a standard size of paper or is hard to hole punch, you can still add it to your notebook. You can affix it to a sheet of paper or cardstock. Or you can put it into a sheet protector. Or as a last resort, you can use a zip top plastic bag.

Reinforce one side with masking tape before you hole punch it. And cut a small slit from one bottom corner so the bag will lie flat instead of puffing up with air. We use a lot of these in our notebooking either because the item we want to put into the notebook is of an odd shape or because it's too precious to hole punch. Sometimes showing someone is more effective than telling. So here, let me pull my daughter's science notebook down and flip through a few representative pages so you can get a better idea of what a science notebook can look like. Here is a freebie (no longer available) from Jeannie Fulbright. On the back of the previous page, I taped a clear plastic envelope to hold a hands-on manipulative we used to demonstrate the orbit and the rotation of the earth. I found this graphic organizer at JFeliciano's Page at Homeschool Launch. This chart is from Eclectic Education's Page at Homeschool Launch.

This example shows how we incorporate minibooks into notebooking. During our study of Michael Faraday and electricity, Sprite made a shutterfold vocabulary book. We simply placed it into a sheet protector. And here are more minibooks about levers, also stored in a sheet protector. Here is an example of a biography page of a famous scientist. I made this notebooking page about Galileo myself. You can download the PDF at by clicking here. This is sketch made during a field trip to a science museum. This is a sketch that Sprite did on her own. I liked it so much that I encouraged her to add it to the space section in her notebook. Here is an elaborate notebooking page of the three types of rocks. A freebie from Homeschool Share with a color illustration. Full color minibooks from JFeliciano. A freebie from JFeliciano.

"The American people want us to get things done for them rather than focus on more and more partisan investigations. The Democrats’ impeachment inquiry will distract Congress from the bipartisan legislative work we should be doing to find solutions and deliver results for the American people. When Clinton was impeached, Brown was a junior House of Representatives member who represented the Lorain area. Mr. Speaker, I rise to call on the Republican majority to allow the members of the House of Representatives to vote on censure. The overwhelming majority of American people want this Congress to censure the President, not impeach him. I support censure not because the President didn’t do anything wrong. His behavior was wrong and reprehensible. I support censure because the President’s behavior doesn’t rise to the level of an impeachable offense as outlined by our Founding Fathers. His actions were private misdeeds that neither subverted the Constitution nor constituted abuse of the power of his office.
