Jessa sent me an email with this great notebook story:
I teach 6th grade Science at a Friends School in Philadelphia and I base a large percentage of my curriculum around the notion of observing, recording, and taking pride in a scientific sketchbook.My students still take notes in a traditional binder, but for each unit they are required to do several annotated sketches in any way they please to help them cement the information.
Check out all the great drawings these kids have done in their notebooks, they’re amazing! This really struck a chord with me, because I loved science as a kid and was always drawing planets and eyeballs and stuff like this. Now I feel like doing it again!
Thanks again to Jessa for sharing these wonderful notebooks from her very talented students!
