Scientists keep notebooks to document their discoveries and record their
learning before, during, and after each research or investigative experience.
So, too, when students enter a science classroom, they are scientists and as
their notebooks throughout the learning process.
Interactive notebooks combine research-based instructional strategies such
as note-taking and concept mapping with other processing strategies into
