My ninth grader is learning about fossils this year, so the great way to get him excited about it is journaling dinosaurs. Take a peek into my homeschool by following my Instagram account.
We are using the book Dinosaurs by Design to learn about dinosaur facts with a Creation world view for one of our high school science books. Part of his curriculum is to journal dinosaurs and write interesting facts for each of them. He has never thought that he draws very good, but since adding dinosaurs to his journaling, he has tried to step up his skills without me prompting him to do so.
I wouldn’t recommend a brown paper for journaling. This would have been my preference and will be in the future.
I love when that happens!
