I encourage you to have your students use the Measurement Cornell Notes template as they follow along the PowerPoint. Cornell Note taking is more than just writing down what they need to know. It provides an opportunity for students to use their creativity which will develop a deeper comprehension of the content as they complete the template. It also ignites high order thinking as students use them throughout the year.
