How to set up a Science Lab Book

The Biology class has just completed 1/4 of the Apologia Biology book.  Eleven labs have been completed.  YAY!

Now is the time for the students to start putting their lab notebook together.  Since we meet only once a week, the traditional composition notebook will not work.  I am requesting the students to place their lab write-ups in a three-ring binder, with the following information.

Page 1:  Title Page

  • The name of the student/researcher
  • Name of the school where the labs were performed
  • School year
  • Complete contact information

Pages 2 – 4+:  Table of Content

  • Left column:  Exp. # and Exp. Title
  • Right column:  Page number where the lab can be found.


Exp 1.1   Using a Biological Key………………………………………………………..  5-7

Next pages:

  • All lab write-ups.  In order and numbered.
  • Neatly done.
  • With Sketches if the lab required sketches.
  • No ripped page.
  • No missing pages.
  • No extra doodles.

I will be collecting these notebooks four times during the year.  The final time, it will be graded and will have the same weight as one lab grade.
