Product Description
This resource is also part of the Physical Science Cornell Doodle Notes Growing Bundle!

These scaffolded Cornell Doodle Notes combine two effective note-taking strategies and can be used to introduce the concept of changing motion, or acceleration. These notes build on my Speed and Velocity Cornell Doodle Notes, but they can also be a stand-alone lesson as they introduce or review the vocabulary and basic concepts associated with acceleration via notes and a Powerpoint. The notes cover the three types of acceleration (speeding up, slowing down, changing directions), the formula and units for acceleration, the concepts of deceleration, negative acceleration, and zero acceleration. There are problem examples in the notes so students can see how to use and manipulative the acceleration formula. There are also practice problems in the review section.

These notes support NGSS PS-2-2: Motion and Stability – Forces and Interactions: Disciplinary Core Idea MS-PS2-2: All positions of objects and the directions of forces and motions must be described in an arbitrarily chosen reference frame and arbitrarily chosen units of size. In order to share information with other people, these choices must also be shared; Crosscutting Concepts: Stability and Change.

Cornell Notes are a note-taking strategy in which topic questions are written in a narrow left-hand column and definitions, explanations, and diagrams are filled in in the right-hand column.

Doodle Notes (or Sketch Notes) are another note-taking strategy for which pictures and graphics activate the visual pathways of the brain, which helps with retention of information when compared to standard note-taking. Your visual learners will really benefit from seeing and coloring in the pictures aside the main points of the notes!

I created a Powerpoint that goes with these notes. The Powerpoint walks the students through the lesson from the Essential Question and through all of the Topic Questions. There is a “Sum It Up” section at the end of the notes, for which students practice applying the concepts.

The Cornell Doodle Notes are 4-pages and there are 3 scaffolded versions plus the answer key included. You can use the 'print on long edge' printer setting to keep the left and right columns aligned when your students flip the page (printing instructions included).

The Powerpoint is included and there are also directions for accessing the presentation via Google Drive (Google Slides). This is obviously optional depending on how you choose to use this in your classroom.

Here are some ways that I suggest using this product:

✎ Whole-Group lesson with scaffolding : decide which students should receive which level of the notes. Hand out the notes to the students. Use the Powerpoint as a presentation and talk aloud through the lesson while the students take notes. Allow them to color/doodle further after each section and at the end of the lesson. {If you have a document camera (an ELMO), you can fill out your own notes and the students can follow along with you as you discuss the concepts aloud!}

✎ Scaffolded Small-Group lesson : separate your students into groups by learning level. Give each student group sets of the appropriate notes for their level. Make sure each group has a device to view the presentation. Post the Powerpoint or Google Slides to your Google Classroom or other online learning platform, or email the Powerpoint version to one ‘student leader’ in each group. The students would view the Powerpoint/Slides together on one device and fill in the notes. . Encourage them to add color/further notes.

✎ Individual Note-Taking or Flipped Classroom : Post the Powerpoint to your Google Classroom or other online learning platform or hand out the Google access directions to your students.. Hand out the appropriate-level notes to each student. Students can work at their own pace to view the presentation and complete their notes. Encourage them to add color/further notes.
