New Scientist - Great for Student Science Journals (Science in the News)

Updated: Jun 27, 2020

"How to think about ...

Life / The multiverse / Time / Truth / Entropy / Consciousness / Gender / Logic / Particles / Schrödinger's cat / Genes / The blockchain / Black holes /

Get your head around the most mind-bending concepts in science"

Another great resource for Science in the News is Scientific American. While teaching Magnetism to Grade 8 Physics students, I chose the following article for Science Journal back in Fall 2015: Earth's Impending Magnetic Flip. Students read, discussed, asked questions, and then answered 5 questions. Worked really well and helped to consolidate key knowledge requirements of the topic of magnetism and the earth as a giant magnet.

In general, having a science journal activity alongside other curricular activities enhances relevance of science, increases interest and engagement, promotes agency, and improves literacy/numeracy skills depending on the article and source.
