The Blast Off into Space Interactive Notebook guides your students through the positions of the sun, moon, and stars. It allows your students to stay organized while focusing on the key concepts aligned to the second grade Georgia Performance Science Standards.
The notebook is made of eight pages with an additional three interactive template pages to complete the activities! You also get nine completed teacher guide pages to help you!
*Idea: I love to have a manila folder for each student for these awesome interactive notebooks. I run off the student title page on bright paper and have the students glue it to the front of the manila folder. The other pages are then stapled inside. I have the students use the back of the manila folder as a glossary for unit vocabulary terms and the front of the manila folder for key facts and notes! When it comes time to study for the end of unit test the students have a complete review packet!
