Interactive science notebooks are a popular tool in many science classrooms across the country. However, each teacher should evaluate carefully if interactive science notebooks are the right choice for his or her classroom. The purpose of this project was to evaluate the effectiveness of interactive science notebooks in one science classroom as well as student opinions on the use of interactive science notebooks. The interactive science notebooks were implemented for two and a half months. Also, students were surveyed and interviewed before and after the implementation of the interactive science notebooks. The results were then compared to the traditional classroom model that was used previously. It was determined that the students liked the interactive science notebooks. They also had a positive effect on classroom achievement as pre- and post-test results were highly consistent throughout the use of the interactive science notebooks. This consistency was not seen with the traditional classroom model.
