- "I love all of your products!"
- "Amazing! Thank you so much!"
- "Great resource for teaching the periodic table"
- "A-MAZE-ING! I purchased three PowerPoint presentations from you. My students have commented several times how cool they are as we've worked through them!! I love your student version of the slides as well - really helps accommodate IEP students. Thanks so much!!!"
- "I love your products! Wish I had bought the bundle to begin with! Thanks."
- "Excellent!! Thanks!!"
- "So great! Thanks so much!"
- "Loved this! Thanks :-)"
- "Very easy and well thought out, thanks a lot! "
- "Amazing product! Thanks for helping this ENGLISH teacher survive teaching high school Chemistry for 2 months (a story in itself!)!"
- "Very helpful! My students learned so much just by completing this worksheet"
- "This was super easy for my students to understand and learn a new concept!"
- "Wonderful, easy to use resource. Thank you so much!"

- "I love this lesson! As a first year Biology teacher, I try to find other ways to teach beside using the textbook."
"Excellent information. Great for the students to get a better understanding of the history behind that atom."
- "This Atomic Theory PowerPoint lesson is a great way for the kids to get the information needed, plus more than would be offered in the book!"
- "As a Special Education teacher, finding lessons that intrigued the kids can be difficult. The videos and provided fill-in sheets (PowerPoint and Word) are a great tool for them to gather the information without drilling information and answering boring textbook questions. I'm excited to use this lesson, as the kids have loved the PowerPoint lessons in the past from Fergy! I would highly recommend any material Fergy produces!!"
- "This is great. Saved me a lot of time"

- "Very student friendly presentation."
- "An excellent resource, saved me loads of time, thanks!!"

Each lesson includes a student and teacher version. The student version contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
DIGITAL INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK
Middle School and Freshman High School Digital Interactive Notebook - Atoms, Elements, and Compounds. Designed specifically for the 1:1 classroom utilizing any kind of digital device such as Chromebooks, Cellphones, or Tablets.
This resource comes packed with 18 engaging activities spread over 27 interactive pages. It covers the Particle Theory to chemical compounds and includes a teacher answer copy. Each page was created to look and feel like a traditional notebook but was designed to take advantage of everything that digital brings.
Digital Interactive Notebook for Google and OneDrive cloud services. If you don’t currently have a Google account, you can sign up for one completely free and get started in 5 minutes. If you’re a OneDrive user, no problem. Simply download the notebook as a PowerPoint file to your computer then upload it to your OneDrive account. The majority of the items in this resource are fully editable. In addition, slides can be added or removed easily to suit your classroom needs.
I feel that the most effective way to see what you’ll receive is to actually access it, play with it, and that way, you’ll know if it’s right for your classroom. To do that, I’ve made available a sample space interactive notebook you can access by CLICKING HERE
This Digital Interactive Notebook is broken down into 5 chapters. Chapters can easily be removed if they don’t correspond to your curriculum needs. The following chapters are included with your purchase.
Chapter 1 - The Particle Theory and Classification of Matter
Chapter 2 - Atomic Theory
Chapter 3 - Atomic Structure and Notation
Chapter 4 - The Periodic Table
Chapter 5 - Chemical Symbols, Formulas, and Compounds
Before computers, we used interactive notebooks to engage our students and keep their notebooks organized and accessible. This however required a lot of material and the unwelcomed task of lugging them all home with you to mark. But we used them because they were effective and allowed us to effectively assess our students understanding.
Why use digital interactive notebooks? As prices decrease, many schools are moving towards a 1:1, computer-student ratio and are becoming digital, the way we teach needs to keep up. You don’t even need a class set of computer, a personal device (cell phone, laptop, tablet, etc. will work just as well).
Digital interactive notebooks provide all the same means of organization and assessment but without the physical notebook. This…
1) Saves you from bringing them back and forth/storing them in your class.
2) Purchasing all the necessary supplies.
3) Having them get lost, misplace pages, etc.
Once you purchase, you’ll get a direct link. This link will allow you to place your own copy of the digital notebook into your Google Drive folder. From there, simply distribute the file to your students. No notebooks, no glue, no scissors, not even a USB in sight. Everything is stored and can be assessed in the cloud from any computer in the world. If your students go on holiday, they can access it. If they’re sick, they can access it.
What activities will you find inside my Digital Interactive Notebooks?
• Interactive drag-and-drop activities
• Embedded Videos that play inside the slides along with questions
• Calculation questions
• Audio recorders – students record and upload their own auditory answers to questions
• Drawings – students create their own drawing then easily upload them to their slides using their device or computer
• Research questions
• Extension questions for early finishers, those wanting extra credit, or incorporated into the mainstream assignment
• Vocabulary check on the entire unit
• Lots more

What if my school won’t pay for Google products or access to Google Classroom?
No problem, G-Suite as it’s called, is completely free and includes everything you’ll need to access your digital notebooks.
What if your students don’t have internet access for some reason?
These notebooks can easily be made available off-line for access anywhere.
Is there a place for students to include their own notes? Yes! That’s the beauty of going digital. You don’t need a left and right side. When you or your students want some more room, just add a slide and go to town.
Worried about plagiarism?
I use turnitin.com to ensure my students are submitting their own work. However, I attempt to make these as interactive and individual as possible, which all but eliminates cheating.
Do you feel that your students will miss out on the hands-on experience they receive from traditional interactive notebooks?
In today’s world, I don’t think that’s a concern. Your students are and need to be well versed in the world of technology and how to manipulate it to suit their needs. This resource will help.
