This research project investigates using science notebooks with first grade students. Students used science notebooks to record (written or with drawings) what they observed, predicted or experienced. Student pre and post-tests, summative test, rubric scores, interviews and teacher field notes contributed to the final conclusion of this study. Science notebooks proved to be helpful to first grade students, but provided the most support for growth for below average students.
