Want your high school students to have better note taking skills? Cornell notes are a great training tool for your students and they fit perfectly into interactive notebooks or binders. This note set and PowerPoint provide an introduction to biology concepts including prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, cell theory, levels of cellular organization and cell organelles.

What's included:

  • 18 editable PowerPoint slides covering a definition of cells, principles of the cell theory, differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, plant and animal cells, levels of cellular organization and functions of 12 cellular organelles
  • 1 Cornell Notes page (comes in 5 versions for easy differentiation)
  • 2 Interactive Notebook pages with illustrations and windows for descriptions of each cell organelle

*Notes and interactive notebook pages come in two sizes- letter size & 7x9 for composition notebooks.

What are Cornell notes?

Cornell notes consist of 1 page separated into 3 sections. A left-hand column provides major ideas and essential questions, while the large right-hand section is for detailed notes. A third section is found at the bottom of the page for summarizing the notes.

Why should you use the Cornell note-taking method?

Cornell notes are organized and efficient. They help students easily pick out the important ideas for any topic. They also make studying easier because students can use the left column of questions as a self quiz.


These notes are differentiated in 4 different versions including guided notes with blanks and notes that just provide the essential questions. Choose the version that matches the skill level of your class. It may be helpful to slowly increase their note-taking independence throughout the year.

An editable version of the Cornell Notes are also included, so you can fit this resource perfectly to the needs of your classroom!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on functions at the organism system level such as nutrient uptake, water delivery, and organism movement in response to neural stimuli. An example of an interacting system could be an artery depending on the proper function of elastic tissue and smooth muscle to regulate and deliver the proper amount of blood within the circulatory system. Assessment does not include interactions and functions at the molecular or chemical reaction level.
Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. Examples of properties that could be predicted from patterns could include reactivity of metals, types of bonds formed, numbers of bonds formed, and reactions with oxygen. Assessment is limited to main group elements. Assessment does not include quantitative understanding of ionization energy beyond relative trends.
