Free Magnets Science Journal For Elementary Learners

 Free Printable Magnets Science Journal

Magnets! Do you remember learning about them in school? I do! I feel like it's a concept we all remember learning because it is just so fun. Who wouldn't love spending a day experimenting with different magnets and making iron bits go crazy? Or having magnet races, pushing along a magnet with another.

But when it comes to proving your kid's learning, it can be tricky. How do you SHOW what you taught them - besides photos? Well, I am hoping my science journals can help you there! Did you know I have others too? You can check them out here or by heading to the science page on the menu above.

This unit includes pages with very simple explanations going over how magnets were discovered, how they work, and how we use them in our everyday lives. It also includes some simple worksheets and two fun activities that get kids to find magnets in their own homes or classrooms.

I love it when science is fun and hands-on and the paperwork is minimal. I know that's what my kids love too. So I have made sure to keep things very simple, clean and easy. Just read through the explanations (your learners can also colour them in!), fill in the worksheet and try out the 2 simple activities.

If your kids are really interested in exploring magnets further, you can continue on with hands-on activities, books, and videos. But you'll have this great journal as proof of your child's learning!

This unit was made to follow the Cycle 1 Elementary progression (grades 1-2) in the Quebec Education program, but it can be used by anyone in any grade. There is no writing on it indicating grade level :)

Free Science Journal: Forces and Motion

 Free Printable Science Journal: Forces and Motion

Here with another great free science journal for your little learners! Have you seen my other science journals? There are more on this page!

Teaching kids about force and motion might seem like a simple concept - you push a swing, that's a push! You pull a wagon and it comes closer to you. But for young learners these concepts can sometimes seem confusing, especially when you begin to compare a slide to a roll, or begin talking about friction.

This unit explains everything in kid-friendly language so that they can better understand the simple forces around them. It also includes some worksheets and hands-on activities they can use to help them understand the concepts in the real world.

The concepts in this journal follow the concepts in the Progression of Learning in the Quebec Education Program, but they can be used by anyone! They're simple for 1st-2nd grade, but can be used by anyone of any age who would like to better understand these concepts.

Concepts include:
  • What is a push?
  • What is a pull?
  • What is force?
  • What is a slide?
  • What is a roll?
  • How these forces are different
  • What is gravity?
  • What is friction?
  • How does friction increase or decrease?

The BEST part is that you can download this journal instantly for free using the link below! It's a great addition to a homeschool portfolio (and for older kiddos, there is NO grade written on it anywhere, so don't worry about that!). It would also make a great addition to a classroom unit on Force and Motion.
