|field guide notes in interactive notebook|
The first thing my students do is spend time taking notes on the species of the forest. They used a combination of resources that included pamphlets, other field guides, and the internet. They put these notes in their interactive notebooks so they can also use them on their test.
When they are finished, we check them over for mistakes, and then they are ready to start the final product!
First, they copy their notes into pre-made boxes. This is so they don't run out of room on their final piece of card stock and if they make a mistake, they can just get a new box, instead of starting their project all over.
