I posted a few weeks ago a template for a “Science Discovery Book” that I had planned to use with my 5th graders to bring a close to the year. I asked them to write a paragraph about their favorite science memory this past year and then draw a picture to illustrate it. I also took a photo of each student dressed in a lab coat, safety goggles, and other science accouterments. I scanned their drawings, added their photos, and compiled all of their memories into a single PDF file. I have just a few more pictures to add, and then I’ll upload the completed file — probably to Google Drive — and send out the digital file to all of the parents… That way, they can save and/or print their own copies.
If you’d like to try this with your class, you can find the template for this project at my TeachersPayTeachers store.
