As I mentioned, we are working on "notebooking" this year for science and history, more interactive way of taking notes and documenting. This is a picture Zach worked on from his Elemental Science Logic Stage Biology. We love Elemental Science. They provide nice student pages with space for notes and places or outlines of sketches. I had him copy the sketch into his laboratory notebook and then label and add color. Then, he did his laboratory writeup in the pages afterwards for the week instead of doing them in the student pages. We used the student pages last year, and they were certainly adequate, but with our focus this year I wanted more and chose to go this way. He continues to do his lab with a buddy each week, which adds some extra fun into his studies.
