Homeschool Science Lab Write-ups

For our science lab notebook we used was a cheap spiral bound notebook from the cheap Target back-to-school sales. You could also use printer paper or regular notebook paper, because the lab notebook isn't about the NOTEBOOK at all!  The science lab notebook is about the kids recording what they did during the science lab.  After reading the instructions from Apologia, I had my children draw a picture or graph of what they did, with a paragraph description.  The picture had to have color, and the paragraph had to be an actual paragraph, not a sentence.  I gave them a grade for the lab report based on how pleased or annoyed I felt when I saw it!  After taking Biology, Chemistry, and Physics at home, using this lab write-up philosophy, my children were WELL prepared for college science labs.

We have another storm blowing into Seattle tonight and tomorrow.  They are saying snow and 50 mph winds!  We are praying we keep power but, if you don't hear from us, you'll know why!
SNOWMAGEDDON!
Trapped!

Then you take the nature-related entries to your local Nature Exchange! More on those at:

and

Nature Exchange staff prefer these reports because 1) they don't have to store them, and 2) most often, kids bring in dead stuff that was best left alive in nature.

We've been doing this since Kindergarten at two different zoos.
