This product includes Cornell notes and a PowerPoint presentation for the unit "Plate Tectonics."
-Cornell: The header includes the title of the notes, page, date, standards/benchmarks, and essential questions. A summary section is included where students answer essential questions provided on Cornell notes. A question section provides students the opportunity to practice higher level thinking by asking a question focusing on the “student notes” section. A “main idea drawing” section is made provided for students to add drawings as visual cues for the main ideas. Each criteria is worth one point making each Cornell worth five points. For easy grading, simply circle missing components or stamp to designate full credit. Students can study using their notes by covering up the “student notes” section and viewing the “main idea drawing” section. Have students read it, cover it up, and then say it again. This is a great tool to help guide students how to study.
Cornell note topics:
1. Layers of the Earth
2. Convection in the Mantle
3. Continental Drift
4. Sea-Floor Spreading
5. Theory of Plate Tectonics
-PowerPoint: The PowerPoint begins with students setting up their header. A “warm-up” is next with two short, anticipation guide statements students answer by using the strategy “think-pair-share” on whether they think the statement is true or false. The PowerPoint next guides direct instruction as students follow along by reading out loud and filling in the blanks in their Cornell notes. After students have completed their “student notes” section, a built-in mini quiz of five multiple choice questions checks students’ understanding. Students complete the quiz on the back of their Cornell notes. The answers for the anticipation guide are presented and then students complete the summary and question section of their Cornell notes. Starter sentences are provided in the PowerPoint to support students complete the summary section of their Cornell notes.
