Otter's Homeschool Botany Curriculum
Notebooking Pages & Printables

I created a few notebooking pages to help my son retain what he's learning in botany this year. All pages are in PDF or Microsoft Word format (or both).

The following notebooking pages are for various misc. assignments in my botany curriculum. Scroll down to see the pages that go with the Botany for Dummies book.

UPDATE: I don't have time to post any additional notebook pages right now. I may post more in the future.

Flower and/ or Plant Notebooking Page

Flower and botany notebooking page

 

This blank sheet (a filled in example is shown to the left) is for recording the various plants and flowers you'll be learning about this year. You can choose from an editable page that can be filled out on your computer or one to print out and fill in by hand.

These pages will make a nice scrapbook of plants and flowers and help you learn to easily identify them out in the world!

Editable flower notebooking page for MS Word

Directions:

  1. Paste a picture in directly from the Internet. Google an example of the plant in Google images, right click & copy your favorite image and then paste it into the box in MS Word. Resize it as necessary.
  2. Type in your plant or flower facts directly onto the page in the fact box.
  3. Type the name of your plant into the name box on the top right.
  4. Choose colors to represent the main colors of your flower or plant. For example: Asters come in a variety of colors. Some Aster flowers are purple, light pink, yellow, light blue or a deep fuchsia. I've colored the circles in the Nature's Paintbox section to represent the main colors the Aster flower comes in.

    To color in the circles in MS Word, click on a circle, right click and choose "format auto shape". On the first tab marked colors and lines click the drop down menu marked color. Choose "More colors" and then choose from the honeycomb of colors or from the slider on the custom color tab.

    You may enjoy coloring the circles by hand with markers, crayons, paint or colored pencils instead. If that's the case, wait until you've printed the page out.

Chapter 14 Taxonomy Project Printables

This 10 page printable PDF will help your students remember taxonomy and understand table 14-1 in the Botany for Dummies book. You need 2 sheets of colored paper for the main taxonomic headings (or just color those cards in by hand) and 8 sheets of white paper for the rest of the printables. Pages 3 and 4 of the PDF should be printed out on colored paper. Print, cut out the pieces and cards and then do the activity.

Use table 14-1 in Botany for Dummies to arrange the cards in the correct order. Place the "taxonomy pieces" (human, dog, carrot and E. coli) onto the correct cards. See how the items filter down into more and more specific categories.
