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!
Chemistry Foldables and INB Pages
Subatomic Particles Foldable
I want to share a subatomic particles foldable I created for my physical science students to glue in their interactive notebooks. My physical science students are starting our first unit that addresses the periodic table. I decided to kick off this unit by reviewing the three types of subatomic particles.
How to Read the Periodic Table Foldable
Since my physical science students are working through their first chemistry unit, I created a foldable to summarize how to read the periodic table. The inside of the foldable contains a periodic table I found online.
Chemical Symbol Foldable
There isn’t much to this chemical symbol foldable, but there’s something about it that just makes me so happy. I wanted to come up with a quick reminder for my students about how to write a chemical symbol that identifies the specific isotope we are looking at.
How Many Molecules? Stoichiometry Lab
We tested our new found stoichiometry skills by figuring out how many molecules we would consume if we drank from the school water fountain for 30 seconds. I had my students make predictions before we started. Their predictions turned out to be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy off.
I created this mole map as a reference for my students while studying chemistry. You could also call it a stoichiometry diagram, but mole map sounds so much cooler.
Balancing Equations Foldable
I created this balancing equations foldable for my physical science classes. We began our chemical reactions unit in physical science by balancing chemical equations.
Writing and Balancing Chemical Equations Foldable
I created this writing and balancing chemical equations foldable for my physical science students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. We completed this after our basic balancing equations foldable. After we had the hang of balancing chemical equations, I had them translate the equations from words to symbols and then balance them.
Types of Chemical Reactions Foldable
I created this types of chemical reactions foldable for my physical science students to glue in their interactive notebooks. We took a tiny break from balancing chemical equations to classify chemical equations. I created this foldable to summarize the different types of reactions.
Classifying Reactions Foldable
I created this classifying reactions foldable for my physical science students to give them some basic classifying reactions practice. In this foldable, students are given a chemical equation which they must then classify as synthesis, combusion, decomposition, single displacement, or double displacement.
Predicting Products of Chemical Reactions Foldable
I created this predicting products of chemical reactions foldable for my physical science students to glue in their interactive notebooks. After we had learned about the different types of reactions, it meant we were ready to learn to predict the products of a reaction.
Reaction Rate Summary Notes
We did a quick notebook page to summarize what we had learned about the effects of temperature and concentration on reaction rates from our experiments. We did the following experiments: Glow Sticks Lab, Effervescent Tablets Lab, Rust Lab, and Effect of Concentration on Reaction Rate Lab.
Stoichiometry Practice Converting Between Grams, Moles, and Molecules
I created this stoichiometry practice page for my physical science students to complete and glue in their interactive notebooks. I designed this page of notes to give my students some much needed practice converting between grams, molecules, and moles.
States of Matter Foldable
I’m pretty proud of how the states of matter foldable I designed for my chemistry class turned out! We put this foldable in our chemistry interactive notebooks.
Branches of Chemistry Foldable
The chemistry textbook I am following this year (Holt Modern Chemistry) begins with an examination of the six main branches of chemistry. I decided to give students a foldable to glue in their notebooks so they would have the definitions of each of these branches.
Types of Chemical Research Foldable
Quick post today to share another foldable I made for my chemistry class. Holt’s Modern Chemistry textbook places a big emphasis on differentiating between three different types of research at the beginning of the year.
Atomic Theory Timeline Foldable Projects
I’m super pleased with how my chemistry students’ atomic theory timeline projects turned out. We didn’t have time to cover every theory in class, so this project helped round-out our understanding of atomic theory.
Classifying Chemical Compounds Foldable
I created this classifying chemical compounds foldable because my chemistry students are currently practicing classifying compounds as either covalent, ionic, or both. Yesterday, we practiced this skill by classifying common, everyday compounds.
Chemistry Frayer Model
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.
Physical Changes vs Chemical Changes Venn Diagram
I created this physical changes vs chemical changes venn diagram for my chemistry students to glue in their chemistry interactive notebooks.
Homogeneous vs Heterogeneous Color Coding Activity
I created this homogeneous vs heterogeneous color coding activity for my chemistry students to glue in their interactive notebooks. As we talked through the activity as a class, we decided that some of the mixtures could be classified either way based on our assumptions. It was a good discussion!
Extensive vs Intensive Properties Color Coding Activity
I created this extensive vs intensive properties color coding activity for my chemistry students to complete and glue in our interactive notebooks.
Lab Report Requirements for Interactive Notebooks
I made this summary of lab report requirements for my chemistry students to glue in their interactive notebooks.
Odd One Out Chemistry Activity
I created this odd one out chemistry activity to give my students practice determining how the placement of an element on the periodic table tells us about how an element will likely behave.
Observations vs Inferences Chart
I typed up this simple observations vs. inferences chart for my chemistry students to glue in their interactive notebooks. We followed this chart up by practicing telling the differences between observations and inferences with a dinosaur activity.
How the Periodic Table Really Looks Activity
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.
