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!
