Ecosystems and Science Folder Labels (printable)

  1. This is awesome! It's great to make the content concrete. At the end of the maternity leave that I covered for the past few months, we were learning about alternatives to fossil fuels, so my seventh and eighth graders researched, designed, and built their own solar cookers. It was a great end-of-my-time project, especially for the eighth graders who were totally checked out by that point anyway.

    Magnificent Multiagers!

    I love your post! We get elodea, guppies, and goldfish every year to study and compare the two fish. I never focused much on the plants though. Do you have each child make their own bottle aquarium? And thanks for the printable!Any chance you could make one that says science notebook instead of folder?

    Thanks everyone!! 🙂 I'm so glad they can be used.

    Melissa, usually the students share a bottle (then we raffle them off). This year, my class is smaller so each student has their own. The guppies and goldfish sound great! Do they take them home after?

    I'm posting labels for the science notebooks tonight 🙂

    The first year we were allowed to let kids "adopt" the fish, but then after a group of frogs (in another grade level) had some disease we were told not to send home any living creatures with students. Bummer for the kids, they loved taking them home!
    I've always had the fish in larger tanks and the kids have to crowd around to observe them. So maybe next year I'll try your bottle idea and that way the fish can be spread out more.
