Science Cover for Journal/Notebook FREEBIE!!!

On Sunday I posted a picture of the science journal we use to collect and store all the kiddos "science stuff." As I mentioned on Sunday, kids glue their maps, little fact books...anything we are using to learn about the topic or theme for that week. Last week we finished up our bat unit and added all the fun activities we did to their science journals. As they add to their journals, they are creating a really neat resource that can be used during the formal writing period. After they have completed all the maps and activities in the unit and added them all to their science journals, they have a tool they can refer to as they write. They have really enjoyed looking through their journals and revisiting the units we have completed already.  Here are pictures of their science journals in case you missed them on Sunday.

Bubble Map: adjectives to describe a bat

These are examples of maps found in my bat unit. All my units contain maps similar to these plus so much more! If you are interested in my bat unit click {HERE}.

I created a new science journal cover for you and your kiddos. The science journal seen here is the one we currently are using and I am not sure where it came from. I think one of my fabulous team members found it in a book. SO, I remembered that I purchased a science bundle from the very talented Nikki over at Melonheadz and created my own science journal cover. Be sure to grab a copy of the cover below because it is FREE!!!! Click {HERE} to visit my store and grab a FREE copy!
Put this cute little cover on the front of your science journal. Have your students draw their face on the person. CUTE!

That's all for tonight my friends...have a great night! TGIF {almost}!
