Science Binder

Setting up our science binder:

  • The binder should be 1″, 3-ring, loose-leaf binder like the one shown below.  Please no huge binders or multi-subject binders.
  • The binder will need 8 dividers/tabs in it.  These can be store-bought or home-made with sticky notes as an example below shows.  The following labels should be on the 8 dividers:
    • IN PROGRESS
    • SKILLS
    • ENERGY
    • ENERGY RESOURCES
    • ECOLOGY
    • BIODIVERSITY
    • ATMOSPHERE & WEATHER
    • PORTFOLIO
  • There should be a steady supply of notebook paper behind the “PORTFOLIO” so students have enough in class.

Here’s how it would look:

(1) cover: “Science” and student’s name.  Here’s an example:

(2) title page:  This page should have hole reinforcers so it doesn’t rip out.  Here is an example:

(3) Dividers: see above example.  8 Sticky notes are used on 8 pages to create “tabs” with our categories written on them.  Store-bought labels are great too!
