Product Description
Nine Chapters of instruction, one year's worth of activities (36!), and pages of printables to use in the notebooks! Improve classroom engagement and inspire active learning!

Thorough, 60-page resource to answer all of your questions about
implementing the use of Interactive Notebooks in your science curriculum.

Interactive Notebooks are a terrific way to get students engaged in the classroom. The activities are fun and allow for the expression of multiple intelligences; all students are able to feel like they are accomplishing something and tend to put their best foot forward!

This guide includes 9, very thorough Chapters:

1. Why an Interactive Science Notebook? . . . . . . . . . . 3
2. Notebook organization . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6
3. How to put together a notebook . . . . . . . . . . . . 10
4. Printable page inserts for notebooks . . . . . . . . . 14
5. Activities for Interactive Notebooks . . . . . . . . . . 28
6. Using the notebooks for labs . . . . . . . . . . . . . 47
7. Using the notebooks for projects . . . . . . . . . . . 51
8. Using the notebooks for homework . . . . . . . . . . 54
9. Using the notebooks for Early Finishers . . . . . . . 57

It gives many tips and thorough instruction on how to begin using interactive notebooks in your classroom, as well as many different ways to implement those notebooks. There is an entire chapter of printables for your students to use with their notebooks as well, as well as blank foldable templates, a fan book template, and a couple of classroom signs!

There is also an entire chapter devoted to a year's worth of Interactive Notebook activities for Life Science - there are instructions for 36 activities total which ends up being 1-2 activities per week! The activities are all very fun and promote active, constructivist learning. Although this chapter is mainly for Life Science, the book applies to Interactive Notebooks in general. I will soon be working on Interactive Notebook Activity Packs for other subjects as well so stay tuned, and follow me for updates!

Please check out the preview to see the some of the pages and photos of the printables in action. Also visit this page to download the entire first chapter:
