1 A Science Notebook Set Up Packet for Primary Grades By Nancy VandenBerge Firstgradewow.blogspot.com Graphics By Thistle Girl, scrappindoodles
2 This little unit is intended to be an aid in setting up a science notebook or journal with kids. It includes A science song Anchor chart idea Science notebook cover Thinking maps Science mini posters Scientific Method mini posters I am a scientist pages Simply print off, (some are available in both color and black and white) punch holes and place into a folder or binder with fasteners. I have also included a set of vocabulary cards either for display in your science center, or have kids collect them in a Science Saver, a simple envelope or on a ring for handy, consistent review opportunities.
3 Our Science Song (Mary Had a Little Lamb) Can we learn something new about our world, new about our world, new about our world? Can we learn something new about our world and can we make a guess? HYPOTHESIS! Can we then find out if it s true, find out if it s true, find out if it s true? Can we then find out if it s true through an EXPERIMENT? EXPERMENT!
4 Our Classroom Scientist Anchor Chart **Have students help think of things to put on bubbles.
