Science Interactive Notebook
This year in science we will be using interactive notebooks. In case you are unfamiliar with the term, an interactive notebook is basically a traditional notebook taken to a whole new level. While we will still use it for note-taking purposes, we will be using it for many additional activities that students will be performing from class including but not limited to activities, classwork, reflections, vocabulary, and more. The key is that students will be asked to express their own ideas and thoughts about the information presented in class. They will then have their notebook as a source to look back at and help them identify how they've processed the information. Additionally, the interactive notebooks are designed to allow students the ability to be creative while becoming independent thinkers that can reflect on and express those thoughts. Eventually, if done correctly, a student's notebook should be their very own textbook that is so much better than our class textbook because it has been developed and written through their own process and will therefore make a great deal of sense to them. It should become a source of great pride for each of your students! I am excited to see how the students handle this new journey and in an effort to help support them have included some resources below.

A master table of contents for our notebooks is posted in the classroom. Due to the nature of this item, the version on this website may not be the most up to date version as we will constantly be adding to it with each new day,activity, assignment, etc.
Notebook Page 102 - Write 4 news stories (1 headline, 2 side bars, and a comic strip) about physical/chemical changes (2 of each).
