Materials Needed for Science Notebook:
Getting Science Notebook Ready:
First you will need to get a class set of composition notebooks and print off the science notebook inserts. You can do this two different ways: either print off all pages now and have ready and pull from when you are teaching a particular concept OR you can print on an as needed basis. Many of the pages have both color and black and white options so make sure that you are printing off only the pages that you will be using.
There is also a full page option and a half page option. The half page option fits perfectly into a composition notebook. I always used the full page for myself on the projector and had my students use the half page option. This also saves on paper, which is great!
The first week of school, I always introduce students to their science notebook. The first pages we complete are the cover page, the contract, and the table of contents. First we always start with the cover page. I let students color their cover pages and glue to a composition notebook.
Next, we always fill out our science notebook contract. Stress the importance of the contract and go through each promise with your class before having students sign their name.
Lastly, we glue in our table of contents. You will need to glue several pages into the book so that your students will be able to use throughout the school year. There are two different versions of table of contents available for you to choose from.
As you teach the various concepts included in this resource, finish the lesson with a science notebook insert. This serves as a perfect way for you to assess each student’s knowledge of the material. I find it easiest to have students complete the page first and then insert into their composition notebook. I found this a great tool to pull out a parent teacher conferences too so parents can physically see where their children are and what their school work looks like.
Here are a few pictures of some of the pages that are included:
