I created this fill in the blank booklet for my grade 8 students. It uses section 1.0 of the Science in Action textbook in the Mechanical Systems Unit. (It is also possible to download this resource with the answer key and use it as a stand alone booklet.) This booklet was created in Microsoft Publisher.
I had my students use 11x14 size paper to fold in half, I then printed the lined paper and had them fold it into their booklets and write the fill in the blank notes off the board along with the drawings. It is also possible to print off the booklets for the students if you do not want them to write the notes out. I printed off a version for a student on a modified program so they would be able to keep up with the material.
