I created many chemistry foldables and interactive notebook pages during the time I taught physical science and chemistry at my previous school. Here is a collection of 26 of these foldables and INB pages that I have shared over the years. Hopefully you will find some inspiration for creating your own chemistry interactive notebooks! Subatomic …

I created this How the Periodic Table Really Looks Activity a few years ago when I was teaching chemistry. I wanted my chemistry students to understand that our modern day periodic table is structured the way it is because we want it to print nicely and be easily readable. To help illustrate what the periodic …

I created this physical changes vs chemical changes venn diagram for my chemistry students to glue in their chemistry interactive notebooks. I need to share you one warning about this venn diagram that caused my chemistry students a lot of issues. See how the image above shows chemical change on the left and physical change …

I created this chemistry frayer model template a few years ago when I was teaching chemistry. We completed this frayer model in our interactive notebooks after completing a What is Chemistry? mindmapping activity to determine what students thought chemistry was prior to beginning the course. I gave students an exact definition to write. Chemistry is …

I created this prime factorization graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to summarize two different methods for finding prime factorization: the factor tree method and the birthday cake method. I teach my Algebra 1 students to simplify radicals through prime factorization because it works no matter what the index of the radical is. This …

Before I teach my algebra students to rationalize the denominator, I try to answer the looming question: why do we rationalize the denominator? I realize that rationalizing the denominator has gone out of fashion as a result of the Common Core State Standards, but the topic is still required by the Oklahoma math standards. I …

This year I created a new writing polynomials in standard form graphic organizer and foldable for my Algebra 1 students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Then, we practiced taking polynomial expressions and writing them in standard form. I was a bit overambitious about how many examples we were going to get through. We ended …

I created this multiplying polynomials foldable for my Algebra 1 students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. I’m experimenting this year with the “grid method” for multiplying polynomials. It’s exactly the same as the box method, but it just seemed to tie better to what we had been doing with multiplying polynomials with …

I created this naming polynomials practice sheet to give my students some much-needed practice naming polynomials. We glued the finished practice sheet in our interactive notebooks. We completed this practice sheet directly after our naming polynomials graphic organizer. I like this practice sheet because after I make up the first few polynomials to name, students …

After reviewing the definition of a polynomial, we completed this polynomial or not color coding activity. We glued the final results in our algebra interactive notebooks. If the expression was a polynomial, students colored it. If it was not a polynomial, they had to explain why. Free Download of Polynomial or Not Color Coding Activity

I created this solving systems by elimination graphic organizer for my Algebra 1 students to use and glue in their interactive notebooks. These are very similar to the graphic organizer I made for solving systems by substitution. We did substitution first and elimination afterwards. My students, like usual, much preferred the elimination method. When I …
