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

These scaffolded Balancing Chemical Equations Cornell Doodle Notes combine two effective note-taking strategies and can be used to introduce the concept of balancing chemical equations and the Law of Conservation of Mass. These notes review chemical formulas including coefficients and subscripts, differentiate between word, skeletal, and balanced equations, use two non-chemistry analogies to help students visualize what a balanced equation means, give steps for balancing an equation, and include a few practice problems. Please note that these notes are meant to be an introduction to the process and they do not cover polyatomic ions.

The concepts here align with NGSS MS-PS1-5 (Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved) and HS-PS1-7 (Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction). These notes also represent the crosscutting concepts of patterns, and energy and matter.

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. This section includes a short ‘Quick Watch’ TedEd video on the Law of Conservation of Mass.

The Cornell Doodle Notes are 4-pages and there are 3 scaffolded versions plus the answer key 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.
