Episode 14 – 3 reasons I love to use notebooking for science

Notebooking is a fantastic way to record what your students are learning in science. This technique has been around for hundreds of years. Men and woman like DaVinci, Beatrix Potter, and Thomas Edison all took advantage of notebooking.

In episode 14 of the Tips for Homeschool Science Show, I am going to share three reasons why I love to use notebooking for science!

The Highlights

In notebooking, the students are not merely regurgitating facts.

Notebooking has two key components:

  • Material Content – The text that students write.
  • Visual Content – A picture that coordinates with the topic.

Three reasons I love notebooking:

  • Notebooking requires the students to think about what they have learned.
  • Notebooking provides freedom for the students.
  • Notebooking engages both sides of the students’ brains.

To get started with notebooking, follow these three steps:

  • Read up on notebooking.
  • Choose what resource you will use.
  • Create a notebooking page.
