If you read my post on planning All American History Jr, then you understand how overworked my printer is right now 🙂

ChemistryThis week I am laying out our Christian Kids Explore Chemistry notebooks. I am pretty excited to be teaching chemistry this year! Although I love the experiments in the book, I am planning on adding two or three more to our class each week.

I chose to keep the notebook divided by the units outlined in the book. Thankfully the cd that came with the book helped to print out the student pages. I did make a section for vocabulary. My boys are already doing a lot of writing in their other subjects, so I typed up the vocabulary to be printed out on address labels. Since the labels are white, I chose to print the blank boxes on yellow paper. Layered Soul

My oldest does have an extra section for the elements. I found an extra book A guide to the Elements that gives a brief history about each element. Choosing 3 a week, he will do a notebook page on each element. My youngest will do the element cards as outlined in Lesson 4.

If you would like a cover page for your chemistry notebook here is the one I made for my boys, chemistry-notebook-pageCover Page
Since I was on a roll with planning, your students might enjoy a little hangman with their chemistry vocabulary. This was a hit for our first class! hangman-chem

  1. The element notebook cards are a great idea! Just think, at the end of the year, you are going to have a periodical stack of elements that the kids can go back to for years.

    Im using the same book this year with my son and I just created flashcard decks of all the vocabulary words and scriptures on http://www.quizlet.com. If you want to use them just search by Christian kids explore chemistry unit and they should all be there Looking forward to this material too! in His Grip. Michelle
