This journal was created to use alongside “raising” our larvae at school. This packet is perfect for teaching the scientific inquiry standards, as students are asked to observe independently as well as analyze changes that occur. At the end of this packet, you will find writing pages that can either be used with creative writing or as an expository piece.
I have created multiple versions. The first version and second version are used with each child observing multiple larvae, with the latter being a more condensed version. The third and fourth versions are used with each child observing only one larva each, with the latter being a more condensed version. I have used this product each of the past three years and my students absolutely LOVE when we have our observation time! We don’t observe every day, but every couple of days to allow for changes to take place. My students are obsessed with naming their creatures and really enjoying seeing how they grow.
