Interactive Science Notebook Setup FREEBIE

Do you want to use Interactive Notebooks in your science class or would you like to update the ones you have?  Read this post about this crucial part of my daily learning routine and get a FREEBIE to help you get started!


First step, gather teacher and student materials for direct instruction and student output.  It's fairly simple: Notebooks, paper, tape/glue, writing materials, and rubrics.



Then I create examples of what teacher input looks like.  For example, note-taking or bellringers (the review question posted on the board as the students enter the room).

Next, I plan possible student output examples to show student mastery of content.





Then I plan out what kind of stations you want to use for cooperative and independent learning.  These are the stations I use on "Lab Day" so that not all students are doing the same learning activity at the same time.



These are some of the examples included in my Interactive Science Notebook FREEBIE.  If you'd like to pick up your copy, click here.
