Product Description

Give your students a different spin when teaching and reviewing the phases of the moon! After years and years of teaching students with the same old moon phase diagram, I know students who struggle need a different view of the relationship between the Earth and the Moon. This doodle note shows how the Moon revolves around the Earth, as the Earth is revolving around the Sun. Your students will see the big picture and be able to connect that to the phases viewed from Earth. The PDF file includes 2 versions with more or less writing.

Suggested solutions are included - one includes an explanation of the tides, and the other tidal locking (why we always see the same side of the Moon). Annotate this creative doodle note to suit your curriculum needs.

Doodle notes provide an opportunity to look at relationships in multiple ways, while activating both sides of the brain through the creative doodling, annotating and coloring. Doodle, or, sketch notes have been shown to:

★ increases retention

★ activate the whole brain, the logical left side and the creative right side.

★ improve focus, people who doodle are able to recall more than those who daydream

★ calm students and reduces stress

★ add novelty to the class, which in turn helps to engage students

Doodle notes can be used as part of a lesson and as independent, group or class review. Collect all of the doodle notes to use as great test and exam review!
