Mission Logs in the classroom

I use an interactive science notebook in my classroom. We call it our Mission Log because it sounds spacey and cool. I use the left side as the learning side and the right side as our reflection side. This is opposite the traditional interactive notebook set up.

Since I walk my students through completing each page, I assumed students did not have trouble keeping up with their notebooks. However, after looking at one student’s notebook and taking a quick class poll, I realized not all students were keeping up with their notebooks.

I have my own copy of our notebook, and I knew I wanted to find a way to post it to our class web site. I did a quick web search on stumbled on FlipSnack. I am really excited about this tool, and my students think it’s pretty cool, too.


  • It’s free.
  • You can embed your flipping books into a web page.
  • You can add pages to an existing book.


  • With the free version, the embed only shows the first 15 pages.
  • Premium versions are expensive.

I have counteracted the problem by creating a new flipping book for each unit. I have also contacted FlipSnack to see if they have education pricing/programs. (I am still waiting to hear back.)

Here is my copy of our science notebook. Since you can only see the first 15 pages, click here for the entire book.

What do you think? Is this a tool you could use?
