Do your students love to doodle while taking notes? Don't fight it, embrace it with Squiggle Sheets!!!
These notes are not only fun, but help to students to meet Next Generation Science Standards.
In order to master the following standard, students must have an understanding of momentum.
MS-PS2-1.ApplyNewton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.* [Clarification Statement: Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.]
Notes are differentiated. 3 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.
