Today we went in several different directions based on each of the classes needs. 1st and 2nd class periods needed to finish the Pretest so they did not have the Microscope drawing worksheet assigned.
3rd Period through 7th Period were assigned the Microscope Drawings.
Questions were covered about binders and notebooks.
Requirements- a notebook OR a binder also keep a Table of Contents in the front
Options- Notebook (loose pages and worksheets will need to be gluestuck in)
Binder - pages should be hole punched
Use tabs- divide notebook or binder up into five sections using tabs to separate sections (this is how students were taught in 7th grade)
No tabs - keep a consecutive run of work without separating them by sections.
