Product Description

These notes are not only fun, but help to students to meet Next Generation Science Standards.

MS-ESS1-4. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth's 4.6-billion-year-old history. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on how analyses of rock formations and the fossils they contain are used to establish relative ages of major events in Earth’s history. Examples of Earth’s major events could range from being very recent (such as the last Ice Age or the earliest fossils of homo sapiens) to very old (such as the formation of Earth or the earliest evidence of life). Examples can include the formation of mountain chains and ocean basins, the evolution or extinction of particular living organisms, or significant volcanic eruptions.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include recalling the names of specific periods or epochs and events within them.]

Do your students love to doodle while taking notes? Don't fight it, embrace it with Squiggle Sheets!!!

Notes are differentiated. 2 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!!!

Copy at 80% zoom for a perfect fit into interactive notebooks.

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.
