Five Good Reasons to Use Science Notebooks
Gilbert, Joan; Kotelman, Marleen
Science and Children, v43 n3 p28-32 Nov-Dec 2005
Science notebooks are an everyday part of learning in the Tucson (AZ) Unified School District. Recently, K-8 schools there began using notebooks in conjunction with their kit-based science program. As part of the district's professional development team, the authors helped during the implementation at Miller Elementary, where teachers and students undertook this journey together. Now, they can't imagine learning science without them.
