Want your high school students to have better note-taking skills? Cornell notes are a great training tool for your students and they fit perfectly into interactive notebooks or binders. This digital note set and PowerPoint provide an explanation of cellular energy, ATP, photosynthesis and cellular respiration. The pages are set in Google slides for students to type and edit in 1:1 classes.

What's included:

  • 39 Google slides on chemical energy, ATP, photosynthesis (light reactions and dark reactions), glycolysis, aerobic respiration, fermentation
  • 3 Cornell Notes pages (in Google Slides format for easy typing)
  • 2 Digital Notebook pages with drag and drop molecules for use in Google Slides

*This resource is a digital note-taking method for 1:1 classrooms that use Google Apps. If you do not have Google Classroom or do not use digital note-taking methods, you will want a traditional version of these notes by clicking here.

What are Cornell notes?

Cornell notes consist of 1 page separated into 3 sections. A left-hand column provides major ideas and essential questions, while the large right-hand section is for detailed notes. A third section is found at the bottom of the page for summarizing the notes.

Why should you use the Cornell note-taking method?

Cornell notes are organized and efficient. They help students easily pick out the important ideas for any topic. They also make studying easier because students can use the left column of questions as a self quiz.

Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. Emphasis is on tracing movement of matter and flow of energy. Assessment does not include the biochemical mechanisms of photosynthesis.
Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed, resulting in a net transfer of energy. Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding of the inputs and outputs of the process of cellular respiration. Assessment should not include identification of the steps or specific processes involved in cellular respiration.
Use a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy. Emphasis is on illustrating inputs and outputs of matter and the transfer and transformation of energy in photosynthesis by plants and other photosynthesizing organisms. Examples of models could include diagrams, chemical equations, and conceptual models. Assessment does not include specific biochemical steps.
Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism. Emphasis is on describing that molecules are broken apart and put back together and that in this process, energy is released. Assessment does not include details of the chemical reactions for photosynthesis or respiration.
