This is similar to a 4 tab flip book, it may be more difficult to show a sequence of events, but it fits into a science journal nicer. If you are super creative, you can even make the front 4 panels one huge picture with each quadrant of the picture represent a vocab word. 
 
 
This can easily be made into a 4 tab foldable. This is great for vocabulary. Students are able to represent the information in different ways. 

In one box, have the students write the vocab word.
The one box, have the students draw a representation of the word.
In one box, have the students write the "official definition"
In one box, have the students write the definition in their own words.

If you want, you can even have students write the definition in another language, or draw non-examples. 

You can teach the students to create this foldable, or just print out templates for them to cut out. You can download a template that I created below.
