Insights: Grades K-1 Myself & Others Student Science Notebook
Author(s): Education Development Center Inc
Children look at themselves and their classmates and explore similarities and differences in such characteristics as height, eye color, and hand size. They become aware of how they are similar to those children they may see as different because of a physical characteristic (such as skin color) and how they are different from those children they may otherwise see as similar
This module helps to create a positive, supportive atmosphere in which children can realize and appreciate that although each of them is unique, they all share many similar characteristics.
Writing is an integral part of learning science in the Insights curriculum, and a critical skill used by scientists. One of the most important tools of the scientist is the science notebook. In this notebook, students will record questions and predictions; observations and data; and interpretations and conclusions. Students may also use this notebook for informal sketches, notes, and reflections on work.
