My students always prepare formal practical and investigative reports using a structured format that is consistent with accepted scientific report writing. I use a customised format that allows them to capture the essential elements of a report of their investigative work. There are many ways to share scientific findings in addition to a standard written format. This written format is suitable for inclusion in any work portfolio or Science workbook. My store, The Aussie Educator, aims to produce and showcase tried and tested formats of a range of teaching and learning resources that are simple, reasonably priced and effective in classroom application.
