Nervous about starting interactive notebooks in your classroom? Already a "pro" at using input and output pages? This resources is for all interactive notebook skill levels. This resource provides "inputs" for the 6 landform regions in South Carolina, broken into "Up Country", "Midlands", and "Low Country". This resource also provides suggestions on how to use them in your classroom.
I like to use these in tandem with my South Carolina Regions Flipchart
After learning about two regions, we take a day to allow students to process the information they have taken in. I hand out an interactive notebook input (provided in this resource). Students glue this on the right hand page in their notebook. Using the information in front of them, in their brains, or in a textbook or other resource, students then create an output of their choosing. This could be a picture, a Venn Diagram, a narrative paragraph, a lotus, or a thought map/web (see example in resource). Students then explain their output with a group or partner.
This is a great way to give the learning and processing of information back over to the students. This resource also makes for great morning work, giving students a choice on how they process their learning right away. I have found over the years that students remember more when they have a day or even 15 minutes the next morning to process, synthesize, and create with what they know. It is also the quietest time in our day! You can almost hear their brains churning!
