This science notebook set up bundle includes a cover page assignment, 3 double table of contents pages, and directions for various homework assignments. In my science class, I use the first page of "output" page directions with only two options for the first semester. In the second semester, I add more options to extend higher thinking. Depending on your students, you may choose to use only the two options the whole year or begin the year with all 7 options.
This could be modified to use in other content areas.
