The implementation of Interactive Science Notebooks in middle school science classes was the focus of this research project. Two groups of sixth grade students were used to conduct the research. The unit covered was about the dynamic earth. The treatment class was taught using Interactive Science Notebooks, while the non-treatment class was taught using a more traditional lecture and note format. Results showed that learning, engagement, thinking, and communication were effected by the use of these notebooks. Through student interviews, students also expressed an enjoyment of the use of Interactive Science Notebooks.
