I am one of those teachers who hates interactive notebooks. Don't get me wrong, there are some amazing ones out there and I really love the idea of them but I just hate all the cutting, gluing and the scraps of paper involved.
I have created a digital interactive notebook for science, specifically for Heat Transfer (aligned to 5th Grade NC Essential Standards Science).
Each student gets a digital copy that is housed and edited in Google Drive. As we move through the lesson throughout the period, students follow along with the coordinating presentation and take down important notes (via typing, dragging/dropping, matching, etc.
The best part about this notebook is the flexibility! You can easily have students type exactly what YOU want. They can add pictures from the internet or add pictures of class demonstrations. Even have them add videos you have shown them in class. There are also several blank pages included at the end to include whatever else you are doing in class. The options are endless!
There are 12 "pages" that incorporate the following topics.
-How it Moves
-Conductors & Insulators
-Expansion & Contraction
-Water & Heat
This digital notebook lasts me about 2-3 weeks and we add to it as we are introduce to new topics.
Included is a matching presentation that teachers can use to introduce the topic or go over the answers as to what they should put in their notebooks.

Do you want to add your own pages and want them to look cohesive with the rest of the notebook? Check out this link for some font, organizers and clipart that was used in the making of the this notebook.
