Animal Notebooking Page

by Jimmie Lanley

Sara emailed me with a neat notebooking page concept — a page that can be used with any animal. She explained,

This year we are exploring the world with the Sonlight Eastern Hemisphere Core. A recurring activity is to do an “animal card” about the unique animals in the various regions. I decided I wanted my daughter to consistently notebook on this, but couldn’t find a free printable page that wasn’t already titled or illustrated with a clip art animal. I wanted a page that included a place for a picture, the classification, and some prompts which are helpful for us starting out.

She attached a file that was a great layout but needed, as she said, “a little pixie dust.” Voila! Here is the revised Animal Notebooking Page sprinkled with pixie dust and ready for download.

I hope that you  make good use of this page in your science studies.  If you have an idea for a printable page, send me an email at or leave a comment on the requests page.

This is really awesome! Thank you for sharing. What about one for plants? And another for rocks/minerals? That sounds like something that could use a similar format and some of your special pixie dust. 🙂
Thanks for all your freebies!!!

Exactly what I needed for the zoo field trips we’ll be taking to reinforce our Apologia Land Animals studies. Thank you! 😀
