The CIMI Log Book
What do we do with the book?
Some pages will be used in
the labs
During the fish lab, for
example, your instructor
may ask you to fill out the
parts of a fish. If you don’t
do this in lab, we’ll do it at
school.
Other pages are an excellent
reference you may use after CIMI
and sixth grade
The Language of Science is an
example of a page that will
help you learn beyond CIMI.
What is an Odontocete?
What is a Mysticete?
This page tells how hunter
gatherers used the plant
This is a link to the ancient
people you read about in Social
Studies.
Since your are going to do
science as a scientist does . . .
This page lists the
invertebrate animals you may
see at CIMI. Some of them will
be seen in the Invertebrate Lab
while others could be seen on
a dive.
Try and check off what you
see by the day. Perhaps each
evening before you go to bed,
in the morning when you get
up, or during labs. Do this
each day so you don’t forget.
Mantis Shrimp
You should be able to see
at least 13 of the 36
common species of fish
listed on this page.
One of the more colorful
fish in Toyon Bay is the
Blue Banded Goby. The
fish is common, but they
are small and live in
rocks at a water depth of
five feet or deeper.
Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, and
Mammals
Color the
box solid
or place a
“x” in the
box of the
organisms
you see.
Leave
blank
what you
don’t see!
I’ll see
who is
paying
attention

Land Plants
Note that with land plants,
you’ll be asked to check if the
plant was “Introduced”
meaning it came to the island
usually by humans. If it is
“Native” meaning it is a plant
native to Southern California.
Finally, if the plant is
“Endemic” meaning the plant
lives no where else on the
Earth.
It is amazing to think that
certain plants and animals live
only on Catalina Island.
Reflection and Evaluation
The last four pages of the log
book are for reflection and
evaluation. You’ve taken risks
and done new things. Writing
and recording your memories
helps you reflect and grow as a
person.
You can do these pages while
you are at CIMI or over the
weekend when you return.
Be sure to answer the questions
and note they are asking about
your feelings.
Could you use a simile?
Many students have the
most difficulty on the
kayak as the partner teams
never seem to get the
paddles working together.
Even if you experienced
difficulty kayaking, you
grew during the
experience.
The last page is for sketching – if
you want
Art is another way to interpret
your experience. Use Contour
or Gesture – your choice.
We’ll finish the Log Books in
Science
Bring the log books to school on
Monday.
