|If you have the PDF version of the Science of Seasons Activities book, you will want a notebook to keep your child’s activity pages together. We always used plastic sheet protectors in our notebooks. We would put 2 pages in each plastic protector with the backs of the pages facing each other. At the end of our study, we had a nice “scrapbook” to look over and show family members!|
Softcover users will want a notebook to store all the cutout pages.
Day2: You will be starting the Explore Spring book today. It is scheduled over the entire 13 weeks and covers a variety of topics. Even though the title says “Explore Spring”, most of the experiments and activities can be done year-round and basic science concepts are covered.
Day 5: You can just use a composition book for your child’s science notebook. Don’t just limit it to the activities in the Exploring Spring book. Encourage your child to record any type of science observations in his book. A special incentive would be to provide a new box of colored pencils. I recommend Prismacolor for the quality. They are so much nicer for children to use than typical cheap school quality colored pencils.
