I'm challenging you to a Summer Science Journal Challenge. Keep a science journal throughout the summer! Remember, science is everything! You may use a journal you already have, buy one, or make one. I hope you take on the challenge of making your journal. See links below. If you don't have the supplies at home, ask for one at school when you drop off your device or pick up a meal. We have a few extra journals on hand.
There will be prizes for different categories:
- Quality--This includes, a mix of detailed observation, drawings or photographs, labels, dates and questions, Please see tips below in "Write Like a Scientist"
- Quantity--The most journal entries and details
- Creativity--homemade journals, color, scientific drawings, your own unique creativity
Bring your journal to Ms. Gretchen when school starts in the Fall, I will have a small team of teachers to decide upon the winners. If you would like to add a picture of some of your best journal pages from the summer to my blog, we'd love to see them.
