SCIENCE INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK (AKA: the INB) “Your Key To Success in Science” = Presented by Melissa Zaher, Gretchen Vikingson & Jerry Willard Have you ever heard yourself say?... Your INB is the ANSWER!!! What is an INB? The purpose of your interactive notebook (INB) is to collect, record, and organize your science information in a creative way, all while creating a PERSONALIZED DIARY of your science learning. This notebook is designed to use both your right and left-brain hemispheres to help you SORT, CATEGORIZE, REMEMBER, and creatively interact with the new knowledge you are gaining. Your INB will also serve as a great tool to help you stay ORGANIZED. The best part is that it gives you permission to be playful and CREATIVE in your responses without "messing up" your notes. Allows you be like a REAL SCIENTIST! Real Scientists Use Notebooks!
