Hands on Science Notebooking enhances learning in any subject. Using notebooking for science is imperative! Science Notebooking enhances retention as students write down their findings and observations and summarize concepts.
Graphing data and illustrating concepts or observations increases retention even more. It is been widely study how using sketching and doodling increases understanding and retention by 100%.
TAILORED PLANNED TO FIT YOUR FAMILY SIZE & NEEDS

- Customizable and undated! Start the year when you want.
USING A SCIENCE NOTEBOOK
Notebooking in the simplest form is note taking with an educational emphasis. However, if you guide the student in the note taking process, notebooking won’t be overwhelming.
With a science notebook, it is easy to see what concepts need review and which ones are misunderstood. A very useful assessment tool!
See the bottom of the post, for more information on our bilingual science journal.
USING READY MADE HANDS ON SCIENCE NOTEBOOKING UNITS
Homeschoolers have a lot on their plate, so using these READY-TO-GO science units will save you time and you won’t get the question: “What do I write?”

HANDS ON PLANT SCIENCE Notebooking
SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY NOTEBOOK
Open & Go! Unit includes easy but meaningful experiments using the scientific method.
See more information below.
Learn Botany By Direct Observation and Experimentation
Students can learn a great deal by nature walks and observation. Using notebooking to notate their observation gives to analyze their findings, research unknown facts and learn by drawing what they see.
GUIDED Botany Notebooking leads to scientific discovery. It is a great tool for learning all about plants and it makes it easy for the teacher/parent. As an open and go unit, students can do a lot of the research, observation and experimentation independently.
HANDS ON PLANT SCIENCE NOTEBOOKING
HANDS ON PLANT SCIENCE is a very effective in teaching children all about plants through direct observation. There’s nothing that can replace the hands on experience!
It is a stand alone Botany unit study that relies on direct observation of plants to teach students:
- Observation Skills
- Drawing from observation
- Application of the Scientific Method
- Using variables and controls
- Record their observations
- Analyze their findings
- MICROSCOPE is recommended but not required.
USE IT FOR ANY GRADE LEVEL
This scientific notebook on plant science can be used for any student that can read and write. Students of middle school to elementary can use this unit study. The answers can be as detailed as the student is able to investigate and write.
WORKS WITH ANY SCIENCE CURRICULUM
As a scientific discovery notebook, it can also be used with any Botany curriculum.
The layouts and format are perfect to notebook scientific observations with any curriculum! It gives you a ready to go resource to have use with any elementary or middle school grade.
