I would recommend doing a lab previously using the same tools so that they can attempt to measure correctly in the classroom before they go into the field where it really matters. I love this level of integration!

I am a current fourth-year student at Wartburg College studying elementary education, but veering towards middle school science. We have spent the semester discussing student-centered classroom learning and it is something that I truly want to incorporate in my future classroom. From what I read from the free sample chapter provided, Fries-Gaither's book will incorporate many types of student of notebook models (lab, field, interactive, and digital) because students will use each of them throughout the year. Although the sample chapter was limited, the index shows me a number of concepts that would be discussed in the full version. It also will include the process of incorporating student-centered notebooks into your classroom, which is something I worry about doing the most in the future. Overall, an excellent find that is going on my Christmas list this year!
