Science is one of my favorite subjects. Lizzy and I began our Science Journal this week. A science journal is a great way to teach writing skills. I am using this book to guide my little scientist.

This week, we learned that scientists observe, watch closely. She watched a small plot of yard. The drawing of the insects, rocks, dirt, and grass was absolutely adorable. We learned insects have 6 legs and 3 body parts and that spiders only have 2 body parts and 8 legs. We also talked about capitals and periods when she wrote a sentence telling what she saw. SOOOO much fun!
We also observed what dries faster, painting with water in the shade or painting with water in the sun. Of course, her hypothesis was correct!
