Interactive Notebooks provide students with a way to organize their thoughts as they learn. They also act as educational portfolios for teachers to monitor and track student performance. Interactive Notebooks are a great resource for student learning and they provide neat spaces for students to keep their learning over the course of a year in one neat space.
