A interactive notebook (INB) your own personalized DIARY of learning about science A portfolio of your work in ONE convenient spot. This is great for studying for upcoming quizzes & test A great ORGANIZATIONAL tool that gives you permission to be PLAYFUL AND CREATIVE in your responses without "messing up" your notes. Allows you to be like a REAL SCIENTIST! Science Notebook

7 Left Side-Right Side: WHICH SIDE?
The notebook is divided into TWO sections. The Left SIDE “LOVES” student work. This is the side that you can use to show me your creativity. This is the “output” or product side. The Right side is “RESTRICTED” and contains only information given by Mr. Albro. Nothing else should be placed on the RIGHT SIDE!!

8 Decomposer Producer Consumer
The notebook is divided into TWO sections. LEFT side “loves” STUDENT work = OUTPUT RIGHT side is “restricted” to TEACHER INPUT DO NOW Copy and Fill in the missing word. Decomposer Producer Consumer Plants are ____. Lions, tigers, and bears are ____. Worms and mushrooms are____

9 LEFT SIDE: YO SIDE These are numbered as ODD PAGES =1, 3, 5, 7,9….
The LEFT SIDE belongs to you. It contains your warm-up, and your reflection/interpretation of the day’s activity. On this page you may include diagrams, cartoons, drawings, poems, foldables, etc. Let your CREATIVITY go wild! These are numbered as ODD PAGES =1, 3, 5, 7,9….

INCLUDES: Instructional Focus lesson DAY’S ACTIVITY DO NOW. Fill in the missing word. Decomposers Producers Consumers Plants are _________. Lions, tigers, and bears are ________. Worms and mushrooms are_________

11 Copy and Fill in the missing word. Decomposer Producers Consumers
DO NOW! Copy and Fill in the missing word. Decomposer Producers Consumers Plants are _________. Lions, tigers, and bears are ________. Worms and mushrooms are_________ The TOP of the left side of the page has the title and for example, is the DO NOW. A DO NOW acts as a review or a thinking point for the next lesson and is done before the start of class and should be completed within the first FIVE minutes of class. This is usually on the whiteboard or on PowerPoint. It may be a handout.

12 LEFT SIDE Your reflection on the day’s activity is placed on the LEFT or OUTPUT side of the notebook. This section acts as a reinforcement for the RIGHT or INPUT side and is referred to as the Science Activity. This side entails hands on, tactile learning. This is what you creatively do! Color is good!

13 Examples of Left Side Assignments

23 What Students Are Saying About ISNs
“ISN's are easy to do and worth a lot of points, so take time and effort to do them well.“ "Always update your table of contents so papers don't get messed up - or in case of an ISN check.“ "An ISN is a great tool, keep it organized!“ "You have to spend quality time on your ISN.“ "Don't leave your ISN until the last day, otherwise you may be up to the early morning hours finishing assignments.“ "Colorize things. It looks so much better that way” "Keep it in order, because you never know when a notebook check might come up.“ "Do not save your ISN until the last minute.  Remember, it counts as much as a test."

Glue stick or tape Scissors A graph ruled composition notebook Erasable pens & pencils HIGHLIGHTER colored pencils NO MARKERS! and NO STAPLES

25 Getting Started: Step 1 The name of the course:
Science Notebook My Name My Grade The name of the course: 8th Grade Integrated Science The words: Interactive Science Notebook The class period that you have science: Period 1, for example The school year: – 2015 Your “awesome” teacher: Mr. Albro Your name: (self explanatory) TWO OR MORE SCIENCE PICTURES: You can draw, get from magazine or Internet.


27 Pocket for loose papers
STEP 2 Create pocket on the inside of the cover and glue in place. Start with the 1st page after the cover and write a page by following the Author’s page hand out instructions.

28 TABLE OF CONTENTS Make your table contents look like this TITLE DATE
PAGE # Grade/ Stamp

29 Table of contents cont…
Title your three columns: Date Title/unit Page # Start your first entry on PAGE 1 (yours should look like my example) Table of Contents Date Title Pg # 1 8/ ISN guidelines 8/ ISN rubric 8/ Safety contract 5 What is Science 7 8

30 STEP 3 Starting with page 1, number pages up to 50 as shown—left,right,left,right--etc Glue in each handout on the correct page 1 2 3 4 Isn guidelines Handout Handout ISN rubric Safety Contract Handout

31 STEP 4 Title page What is Science? 5 Date What is Science 6 7 8

32 NOTEBOOK RULES.. No RIPPED OUT pages or torn corners
No DOODLING that doesn’t relate to science Notebook is used for SCIENCE CLASS ONLY DATE AND NUMBER each page All entries must go into the Table of Contents BE COLORFUL & LOVE YOUR NOTEBOOK

NOTEBOOK Hints “To the Left, To the Left, To the Left” I will provide immediate feedback by checking notebooks regularly. We will have occasional open notebook quizzes to inspire great notebooks. The notebooks are your personal science learning space! What are you curious about? What would you like to test? What was the main idea? What are the important details to remember? How does this relate to your life? What don’t you understand?

34 Your Homework DUE ON TUESDAY.
Make sure you have your TITLES at the top of each page to help you to remember what you need to PASTE in the notebook Complete your AUTHOR’S PAGE, TABLE of CONTENTS, and the COVER of your ISN
