Product Description

This resource is also part of the Intro to Waves 5E Lesson with PhET Virtual Lab!

These scaffolded Mechanical Waves Cornell Doodle Notes combine two effective note-taking strategies and can be used to introduce the basics of mechanical waves, including the concept of a medium, the anatomy and movement of energy through transverse and longitudinal waves, the relationship between the amplitude and energy of a wave, the abbreviations and units for wavelength, frequency, and the wave equation, and how particles move in circular paths as surface waves in the ocean pass through them. These notes also highlight the NGSS crosscutting concept of patterns. These notes are meant to be an introduction to mechanical waves and while they introduce the wave equation, they do not cover manipulation of calculations. These notes are a great way to cover content for the NGSS Core Ideas of MS-PS4 (A simple wave has a repeating pattern with a specific wavelength, frequency, and amplitude. A sound wave needs a medium through which it is transmitted.).

Cornell Notes are a note-taking strategy in which topic questions are written in a narrow left-hand column and definitions, explanations, and diagrams are filled in in the right-hand column.

Doodle Notes (or Sketch Notes) are another note-taking strategy for which pictures and graphics activate the visual pathways of the brain, which helps with retention of information when compared to standard note-taking. Your visual learners will really benefit from seeing and coloring in the pictures aside the main points of the notes!

These notes include two short ‘Quick Watch’ video clips to help students visualize and describe wave motion (seeing waves in motion is so important when learning about waves!!) I created a Powerpoint that goes with these notes. The Powerpoint walks the students through the lesson from the Essential Question and through all of the Topic Questions. There is a “Sum It Up” page at the end of the notes, for which students practice applying the concepts.

The Cornell Doodle Notes are 4-pages plus 1 page for practicing with the concepts and there are 3 scaffolded versions plus the answer key included.

The Powerpoint is included and there are also directions for accessing the presentation via Google Drive (Google Slides). This is obviously optional depending on how you choose to use this in your classroom.

Here are some ways that I suggest using this product:

✎ Whole-Group lesson with scaffolding : decide which students should receive which level of the notes. Hand out the notes to the students. Use the Powerpoint as a presentation and talk aloud through the lesson while the students take notes. Allow them to color/doodle further after each section and at the end of the lesson. {If you have a document camera (an ELMO), you can fill out your own notes and the students can follow along with you as you discuss the concepts aloud!}

✎ Scaffolded Small-Group lesson : separate your students into groups by learning level. Give each student group sets of the appropriate notes for their level. Make sure each group has a device to view the presentation. Post the Powerpoint or Google Slides to your Google Classroom or other online learning platform, or email the Powerpoint version to one ‘student leader’ in each group. The students would view the Powerpoint/Slides together on one device and fill in the notes. . Encourage them to add color/further notes.

✎ Individual Note-Taking or Flipped Classroom : Post the Powerpoint to your Google Classroom or other online learning platform or hand out the Google access directions to your students.. Hand out the appropriate-level notes to each student. Students can work at their own pace to view the presentation and complete their notes. Encourage them to add color/further notes.
