Product Description
Life Science - Seedling Germination Observation Notebook

How can we guide students in making scientific observations? This lab notebook was designed for just that purpose. My students had just set up their seeds of garden beans and corn. I made these notebooks instead of going over the process of how to take measurements and be specific when making observations and taking notes for science.

They have the pages numbered so that they can be printed on regular 8 ½" x 11" paper, double sided, and then folded over so the result is an 8 page science observation notebook. It may be stapled or simply folded over by each team of students. I have included examples of my students' seedlings initially and at maturation. Their notes and drawings helped a great deal in guiding their progress and making the observations using a uniform method that was scientifically framed.

This project uses a lab set up by Bruce Wentzell of TpT called "Life Of An Organism, Hands-On Science Activities". It's a terrific and easy set up that uses sandwich bags, rubber bands and cardboard. It is easily modified for various grade levels according to how basic or in-depth you are covering seed germination and development.

My students make observations daily in groups of 3 to 5. They often come in before school, at lunch or other times to check on their seedlings' progress. I use hand lenses and metric rulers to encourage my students to look closely and take measurements. However, these are not required and this project is just as successful without the additional tools.

Please enjoy this lesson unit as much as my students and I have!
