Great Ideas for Your 5th Grade Interactive Science Notebook & More!

Science needs to be engaging, hands on, and visual. The concepts are often challenging and to meet the needs to all learners, visual interactive notebook elements are a win for everyone! My students took the CAST also known as the California Science Test and scored 17.5 points above the state average! That was during a pandemic. My class average was in the "Standards Met" category!!!! Learn more about my test prep strategies HERE.
