    Earth Science | Environmental Science Interactive Notebook Bundle


    ***Important Update - Now includes additional, colorful Digital Google Slides Versions for Google Classroom! Designed for Distance Learning

    The units covered within the Earth Science Bundle are: Rock Cycle, Minerals, Plate Tectonics, Volcanoes, Weather, Ecosystems, Earth's Cycles, Photosynthesis, Biomes, Energy

    This resource is part of the Earth Science (Entire) Curriculum.

    6th grade students love these interactive journals for Earth Science curriculum. This resource contains over 600 pages of interactive learning material!

    This resource is aligned with Earth Science Interactive PowerPoint Bundle I would highly recommend using these interactive PowerPoints along with the notebooks but it is optional.

    Materials include: Interactive notebook covers for each of the 10 units, reading passages, answer keys, critical thinking and analysis questions, flaps, foldables, graphic organizers, and more.

    Several STEM Activities included & NGSS Aligned!

    Here is a more in-depth look at each of the Interactive Journal units:
