Parts of a Circle Doodle Notes
Parts of a Circle: "doodle notes" -
by Math Giraffe:
When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!
Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.
- visual representation of parts of a circle
- formulas for circumference and area

Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory. When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.
This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!

Reviews from other teachers:
-Used as a study guide for my daughter in Geometry! She is filling in the notes as a way to review the topics taught throughout the year!
-This is such an awesome activity. I used it to supplement my lesson and students loved it. We had a great discussion while going over the vocabulary and concepts. It is a great teaching tool as well. Thank you
-Who doesn't love a doodle note? I have many students that love to draw and color and this was a great way to incorporate that into my lessons without them getting in trouble for not working on their math!
-I used this after reading about the benefits of doodling during class. I had a small class of 7th graders that were struggling and I tried it with them. They loved the activity. It really helped them to get a summary of that lesson.
-Love Doodle notes both for review topics and for new to help organize information in a multi-engaging of the brain way. I used these for review for high school standards with surface area and volume.
