I want to incorporate more science notebooking, but I am kind of at a loss on where to begin. Last year I had a nicely organized folder on my computer, labeled by week of science curriculum with nice little lapbooking components to fill out and paste into our 3-ring binders. Well . . . that didn't happen! They are still in their little folders, unused. This seems to work for history, but it hasn't worked in our homeschool for science.
So, I need to simplify and start with something easy. I am seriously overwhelmed by the number of 3-ring binders in our home. Where will all of these beasts fit? There is no room! I am considering trying to find a bound notebook with unlined pages that can be used for sketches and we can glue an occasional graphic from an Usborne link, photos of science experiments and projects. I think we could even staple in like a flap a science notebooking page found at various notebooking sites.
I need ideas! I think the little minibooks and such are great ideas! But how to incorporate them? I don't print up a whole year's worth of pre-made minibooks, as sometimes our needs change and we just didn't cover something or we don't need to cement an idea in. Does that make sense? So, I think we'll print out some generic minibooks of all sizes and shapes and use Usborne graphics and such things to fancy it up.
What do you think?
