The Early Years: Documenting Learning

by: Peggy Ashbrook

Children’s work documents their thinking and the details they note as they learn more. Over time, by drawing, dictating, or writing about their observations, children can reveal and deepen their understanding of science concepts. Documenting work to further understanding and sharing information is part of the National Science Education Teaching Standard B: Teachers of science guide and facilitate learning and Content Standard A: Science as Inquiry.
