Having organized stations is a sure-fire way to be successful during the school year.  My notebook stations are the same as my lab stations so the students know which station to go to when it’s time to work on their notebooks.

My classroom was set up around a Marine theme so my lab stations included the:  Sea Turtle Station, Shark Station, Jellyfish Station, Dolphin Station, Stingray Station and Whale Station.  Each station has their own Science Interactive Notebook Bin labeled with their group animal, so it’s easy to know which bin to bring back to their table.

Here are some basics to always have in the bin.  I would assign a group member to Group Supplies, so when something gets low, they are to let you know.
