Here are a few--
Then, for the first activity in the science notebook, I asked all of the kids to draw a picture of what they thought a scientist looked like. (One girl asked me if her scientist could be a girl? Well, of course! Sooo cute.) After they drew their picture, they were then asked to write down any words or phrases that described what a scientist does. We shared as a class and came up with things like experiments, read, study, discover, create, ask questions, mix things, potions (haha), observes, etc...
I then asked them some of the following questions:
1. Do you observe things around you?
2. Do you ask questions?
3. Do you ever create things?
4. Do you study?
They sould start to realize that they ALL do these things, therefore everyone is a scientist! I Here are some of their drawings:
This one is supposed to show the scientist making an accidental explosion! HAHA I love these kids!
Do you use a Science Notebook? If so, what activities do you put in them?
Here are a couple of great blogs about science notebooks.
