Reflection: Journaling Science Notebook Wrap-Up - Section 3: Explore: The Notebook Game


Why play a game?  Why now?  In playing this game, the children will be looking through their notebooks.  By doing this, I also want the children to realize what a great resource that they have created.  The essence of what they have learned can help them in their future endeavours.  Knowing the exact magnitude of an earthquake that happened on April 18 may not be the answers to their life's burning questions, but knowing how we figured it out, how we graphed the information and how we went about answering the question will come in handy.  Knowing HOW and WHY is part of life's critical learning that has taken place this year.
