This product is a quick, easy to assemble "memo pad" style hand out for your class. I have used this numerous times when teaching the art of the current civilization or time period that we are studying in my World History class. It allows for students to easily have something that they can carry around and take quick notes on the art that they are learning about. It also makes it easier for me to go back and grade their notes to make sure that they are actively learning. This product would also be convenient and easy for students to have and take notes with while on a field trip. I have uploaded the MemoNotes in Word so that you may edit and update it to fit your unique and awesome learning situation!
1. Make sure to copy/print the MemoNotes two sided. This will allow for each "page" that the students flip to have space to take notes with
2. Cut the paper into thirds along the vertical lines so that you have three identical strips of paper.
3. Lay the three strips on top of each other, so that you now have a stack of 3 papers.
4. staple the stack of papers along the horizontal line in the middle (1 staple right in the middle usually works for me, however you may want to do two staples, especially if you are using more than just one (two sided) sheet).
5. Fold the paper in half along the staple, and Voila! You now have an easy way for students to take notes over visual images.
(I usually have my students do the cutting and stapling so that I don't have to do it all myself!)
One two-sided print out will yield 12 "pages" allowing for the ability for students to take notes on up to 12 pieces/exhibits.
