Each concept shares:
Actual photos of both the INPUT and OUTPUT pages of Science Interactive Notebook
Detailed instructions on how to create/use/complete activity for OUTPUT side
Mini-Quizzes for each concept to check students’ understanding
Answer Keys for all mini-quizzes

Each STUDENT OUTPUT activity enables students to process the information given by the teacher then allows them to use self-direction to apply their new knowledge. The engaging activities always vary in order for all students to use and benefit from different learning styles. Activities included correlate with the Next Generation Science Standards and include the following:

• Punnett square practice where your students need to use background information on ABO blood types (polygenic inheritance) to help fix a lab mix-up
• Protein synthesis cookie analogy to help understand messenger RNA (mRNA), transfer RNA (tRNA), amino acids, polypeptide chains, ribosomes, DNA transcription and proteins
• Pedigree chart that follows a recessive trait through a family
• Analogy of hybridization – students use selective breeding on their favorite foods to make a “Tastization” brochure
