These FREE! 3-page (plus 1 practice problems page) Metric System Cornell Doodle Notes can be used to introduce or review the metric system. The notes begin with a section that shows why the Imperial system is quite silly (especially for science!). Then, they present that 10 is the ‘magic number’ of the Metric system, and proceed to explain the S.I. Units of mass, length, fluid volume, and time, the prefixes, the King Henry mnemonic device to remember the prefixes, and then to explain how to convert between metric units.
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 (or Sketch 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!
This is a Free Sampler of my Metric System Scaffolded Cornell Doodle Notes and Powerpoint, which includes a second scaffolded version of the notes, a parallel Powerpoint presentation, and a link to the Google digital version of the presentation.
