**This set aligns to 5th Grade NGSS!**
This package includes 19 journal prompts for science notebooks. Each prompt requires students to research and investigate, and to draw models and diagrams related to Earth’s systems. Students will use research to explain and describe their drawings and models. These prompts are meant to engage students in the learning process. Students can work independently, though collaboratively is recommended. Students will investigate scientific phenomena through research, collaborate with peers, create, and explain.
To save paper and time, you may consider displaying prompts on your interactive white board while students research and create. Students can transfer the prompt in their journals before they start investigating. Journal entries also serve as authentic formative assessments.
