These scaffolded Cornell Doodle Notes combine two effective note-taking strategies and cover the concept of an ion as a charged atom, why atoms give away or take electrons, how to determine and write the charge for an ion, the difference between cations and anions, the concept of an ionic bond as an electrostatic attraction due to ions’ opposite charges from electron transfers, a table of common ions, and the steps for drawing an ionic bond and writing its chemical formula. There are many analogies mixed into the notes to help students to understand these concepts!
These notes can be used as part of the input for NGSS HS-PS1-1: 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 and NGSS Disciplinary Core Idea PS1.A: The structure and interactions of matter at the bulk scale are determined by electrical forces within and between atoms.
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 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!
What's Included (please see the preview also!):
- The Cornell Doodle Notes are 5-pages each and there are 2 scaffolded versions plus the answer key
- Two presentation options: Powerpoint AND Google Slides
- Google Slides digital version of the notes with student directions and Google Tools and Fonts sidebar
Here are some ways that I suggest using this resource:
✎ 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 or Google Slides as a presentation and talk aloud through the lesson while the students take notes OR 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! Stop throughout the lesson to have the students pair-share and discuss what they are learning. Allow them to color/doodle further during and at the end of the lesson.
✎ 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 or Google Slides presentation to your Google Classroom or other online learning platform. 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. Could also be assigned for homework or as a “half & half lab” for which one group of students is taking notes at their desks while another group is performing a lab.
✎ Distance Learning Scenario: Create a screencast lecture using one of the presentation options, or you could record audio clips over each slide that your students will play as they view the presentation.
Options for Digital Note-taking:
- Assign the Google Slides version of the notes (please view the Preview for images of what this version looks like!)
- Assign this resource using TPT's Digital Activity Tool
- Assign these notes digitally using the Kami Extension for Google Classroom. Learn about this option by downloading THIS FREEBIE!
Please note that this resource is not editable due to font and clip art licensing agreements and also to protect my work. However, you can always add additional text boxes to the presentation, as well as insert new slides with images/text/video clips, etc. to customize the lesson for you and your students!
