The reason for these is to better organize students notes and class work. I don't want the notes we take in class to be put on a random piece of paper and then get lost on the way out the door. I want them to be a useful tool in helping understanding the content and used to help study. They will be able to keep them in a safe place in the classroom but can take them home to help with homework or to study for test and quizzes.
Students will be asked to bring in a notebook specific just for science to use. I would prefer the composition notebooks like the one shown because the paper doesn't rip out very easily. A spiral notebook will work if a composition notebook is not available.
Here is a look at what they will look like.
