ESS2-3: Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental
shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions. [Clarification Statement: Examples of data include similarities of rock and fossil types on different continents, the shapes of the continents (including continental shelves), and the locations of ocean structures (such as ridges, fracture zones, and trenches).] [Assessment Boundary: Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed.]
Do your students love to doodle while taking notes? Don't fight it, embrace it with Squiggle Sheets!!!
Notes are differentiated. 2 versions are included. Use the included answer key or choose to use the blank version to make the notes your own.
When working through a Squiggle Sheets page, students complete a variety of tasks, including coloring, note-taking, and embellishing.
This note taking strategy is backed by science. Findings indicate that students learn more and retain information longer if they write their notes by hand rather than typing them or having them handed to them. Also, additional research proves that the brain remembers information better when it’s presented in color. In other words, writing and drawing can make us smarter and doing it in color is even better! And students love them!!!

These notes include an Understanding Checkpoint and Answer Key. It can be used as an open note assignment or closed note quiz.
***Also offered separately is a powerpoint that shows close-ups of the included answer key, it assists students with completing their notes. I share these with my students in google classroom. They are able to work on their notes at their own pace or as homework.
