DVIA: Grade 1 - 2: Science Student Plant Journal
  • Created By Jose Arias
  • Description:
    This Plant Journal should be used throughout this playlist.
    With guided phrases and observation cues, the student Plant Journals are designed to help young children hone their skills in observation, questioning, and journaling. The large, blank spaces encourage students to draw pictures, record measurements, and write observations, questions, and hypotheses. On each day that students observe or tend their plants, they should record their plants'
    growth and their own actions on a new Plant Journal sheet. Over the course of the life cycle, they will create their own journal of their plants’ growth. On the back of each page, students can write poems, glue pictures, or tape pressed plants to help them remember their plants at each stage. At the end of the activity, have students make a
    Life Cycle Log that binds all their Plant Journal pages together as a journal, so they can see how their plants grew.
