FOR THE CLASSROOM
Great in notebooks, or in a picture frame on the wall of your home classroom! The steps in the scientific method in a kid-friendly format:
Even preschool-aged scientists need a lab notebook! Easy format for students to record their observations with big handwriting and hand-drawn pictures:
Lab notebooks for elementary students encourage skills like critical thinking, collecting data, and interpreting results. The formatting of this notebook helps guide students to record observations using the scientific method – similar to how they’ll conduct an experiment in a high school (or professional) setting.
Will you be walking your student through the experiment? The teaching guide (the first link) is for you! This includes discussion prompts, and extra detail. The student experiment (second link) is a student-led lesson for curious young scientists (who can read well).
“What is yeast” experiment is an easy introduction about the living microorganism, yeast, and why it is a key ingredient in bread-making.
“Exploring acidity with potions in the kitchen” experiment is an elementary explanation to pH, acids and bases, and why acidity is a key food science principle.
