Insights: Grades K-1 The Senses Student Science Notebook
Author(s): Education Development Center Inc
Children are provided with a variety of experiences that encourage them to use all their senses to more closely observe and describe objects and phenomena around them.
They compare, sort, and classify objects by various properties. They compare their senses one to the other, raising questions of what it would be like to be unable to hear, see, taste, touch, and smell.
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.
