ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Just like famous scientists, children in grades 3–5 can discover the value—and fun—of keeping a science journal. Notable Notebooks: Scientists and Their Writings, a new book from NSTA Kids, shows how luminaries from Galileo to Jane Goodall used notebooks to sketch observations, imagine experiments, and write down their thoughts and questions.
Notable Notebooks is written in captivating rhyme and includes charming illustrations. In addition to mini-biographies of featured scientists, the book spells out four steps to help children start their own science notebooks.
“Every year, I wish I had a great read-aloud about scientists and their notebooks as we kicked off notebooking in my classes,” said author Jessica Fries-Gaither, the lower school science specialist at the Columbus School for Girls in Ohio. “It finally occurred to me that I should just write one myself!”
