Notebook Pages

This Notebook Companion™ was created a bit differently than our typical notebook pages in order to accommodate journaling over 300 insects (without taking over 300 pages!).

Each page has an index card-style layout that includes 2 cards that can be cut out and used in a card-like fashion. If you cut the sections into cards, you can choose to color the top section/tab a different color per insect group. Laminating the pages after they are completed will make them durable for referencing them for years to come.

Please Note: As much as possible when creating resources to be used with secular books, we omit asking any questions that require reading passages related to evolution. That was not possible for the occurrences in this unit, given its encyclopedic nature. As you explore the encyclopedia with your family, please use caution as you would with any secular encyclopedia resource.
