I have been using the QPEOC method for at least 10 years. About five years ago, I decided to create a year-long journal for our special “experiments” so that we could observe and record like scientists.
I try to use the QPEOC journal about once a month. Some experiments are “one and done” – started and finished in a day. Other experiments are compilations of data over the course of a week or month, and then we revisit the journal to record and share our conclusions at the end of the period of time.
I’ve added an explanation page to let you know of any special materials you might need, and to tell you how I accomplished the task.
I’ve developed the questions to align with our curriculum and also with the trends/flow of a school year.
I have my QPEOC journals printed (double-sided) on white cardstock (for durability) and then bound (either spiral or comb).
