Today we finished our weather unit. I wanted to share Mikah’s Notebook with everyone so you could see how simple lapbooking / notebooking can be. It’s so much better than filling out a page of “multiple answers” or “fill in the blanks” because it engages the student in the thinking process. Mikah understands the atmosphere has layers because she cut out the layers and assembled them in a layered book. Then she labled the layers and the divisions. She kept data sheets on the daily weather and clouds. Below are some examples from her book. (Note: Yes, Mikah still writes some letters and numbers backwards. We work on that during writing, not science!)
The notebooking / lapbooking items came from a variety of website. I also created some myself.
Here is a list of most of the resources I used for our unit study and notebook / lapbook pages.
