The student notebook provides an organized, complete plan for the year (4 days a week for 33 weeks), which lets students check off their progress as they work their way through. It has places for their notes as they’re reading, lab charts, and tables to record their scientific findings. Tips to complete the experiments and activities allow for greater success. Space is given to define vocabulary words, answer “On Your Own” questions, take notes on the textbook reading, and record the student’s reaction to the content.
Designed to gently lead students in developing independent notetaking skills, the student notebook introduces several methods for taking notes that are expanded upon as the Modules progress.
The Student Notebook takes the place of a Sonlight Schedule Plus, providing the guidance necessary to complete Exploring Creation with General Science.
