Whew, that was a mouthful, but I thought I’d show you what we’ve been using with our science pick for the year.
This is a printable lapbook created by “A Journey Through Learning” on Currclick. I got it during one of their periodic 50% sales, at some point I should join their affiliate program because I talk about them frequently enough.
There is also a black and white version, but I liked the appeal of color, and if I want I can print it in black and white.
Besides my kids are very back and forth on coloring.
What has been working for me is printing off a chapter’s worth of materials at a time. The picture here is showing Princess holding her drawing of what she thinks a mosasaurus looks like. Apparently they’re pink.
She thinks a lot of stuff is pink. But, it’s been an interesting window into their world having them tell me what they got from the readings for the day. Some days it’s been insightful, others it’s “They eat fish, Mommy.” Thanks kid, anything else?
All in all I really enjoy this. I especially enjoy that if we go back to this textbook I can just print off the material again and they can fill it out again.
Here’s a couple of fun things ya’ll did this week:
Journey to Josie shared about their leaf field trip and I LOVE how they spent time picking up trash first.
Fantastic Five shared how they tested for starches in their food using iodine.
Do you have anything you’ve found super helpful like this? Something that went with what you’ve been using and made it so much easier?
FYI: I changed how long the linky was open, I thought the people who linked up later in the week weren’t getting as much traffic as other people, so I decided to close it earlier so the people linking later in the week can instead be one of the first ones on Sunday morning. Oh, and this forces me to visit people earlier……….
