Science Journal Project
Over the next two months of Physics, you are to use 10-15 minutes on assigned days to read
about some topic of interest in a science related article or book. You may bring these in from
home, or access my collection of books and magazines at the side of the classroom. In a journal,
you are to:




Mark down the date
Title of book or article read
Summarize what you have read
Write down any questions/comments after reading the article.
From these readings, you will choose ONE topic to study in more depth. You are to rely on the
questions you have about a topic after reading about it.
Can you find the answer to your questions? Do more questions occur to you as you study the
topic?
You are to complete research- during science journal time in class, and on your own time at
home. You are to complete ONE of the following
A research report
A powerpoint
A poster
OR present your topic to the class
The project must include:
Why you are interested in the topic
The questions that you had about the topic
The results of your research into the topic
Visuals to help the class understand the topic
A proper work cited page for all of your research
This project is to be completed before Easter. If you wish to present to the class, please discuss
with me an appropriate date.
