This is a journal to accompany a plants unit. It includes a drawing space for student sketches, nine lines for students to write about their observations, and a word bank. It includes general observation pages and a page to document the growth and measurement of a student- or teacher-planted specimen. The journal includes a cover page and a vocabulary page. Color and grayscale pages are included.
I have used it in my own first-grade classroom and my students LOVED it! I copied about 20 general pages and 20 measurement pages in order to assemble a student workbook. Students wrote in their journal during workshop when they visited the "observation station" that was filled with various live specimens, preserved leaf and seed samples, and books.
