Sketchnotes are creative, hands-on, auditory, personal, and brain-friendly fun! If you love interactive notebooks you'll love this differentiation strategy! Get this activity as a PDF download for printing or upload the PDF to your favorite note-taking app like Notability, a GOOGLE Chrome extension, or Microsoft One Note -all really versatile for a tech-infused lesson.
I really love how a concept can be mapped out with visuals like with interactive notebooks but without the cutting. Sketchnotes help my students' memory and recalling skills -doodle notes, pictures, symbols, sequence, color, and frames, and fonts.
Sketchnotes are an inspiring and logical way to engage in visual note-taking from direct and student-centered instruction. Sketchnotes can be used for:
★Auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners
★Studying and memorization
★Gaining insight on complex subjects
★Jogging your creativity
★Visually appealing presentation of information
★Allows students to discover their own style
