Science Investigation and Reasoning: Science Safety and Protection
Learning Goal: The student uses scientific inquiry methods during laboratory and outdoor investigations.
A science notebook is an amazing strategy for your students to record and reflect on inquiry-based observations, activities, investigations, and experiments that will increase their comprehension and understanding of science instruction. The science notebook can be an excellent tool for students to communicate their understanding of science concepts. Science notebooks give teachers the opportunity to provide students with immediate feedback and assess their learning. Science notebooks are a great way for teachers to integrate science experiences with reading, writing and mathematics.
