The Metric System Doodle Notes
Understanding the metric system of measurement and converting metric units: 3 page visual interactive "doodle notes" set -
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. Graphic doodle and sketch notes take full advantage of Dual Coding Theory (the way brains process visual and linguistic information) to maximize retention.
- metric units of measure
- understanding and estimating with metric measurements
- converting between units
- graphic charts and organizers
- practice & examples
Check out the preview images for more detail about this item and the research behind it.
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!
3 pages are included, plus answer keys, samples, and info.
Reviews from other teachers:
-My students love doodle notes to make them more engaging and eye-catching for reference. We use these and the customary version every year!
-Very useful for my notebook for students
-LOVE THIS! I love that my students can doodle all while learning! They love it! Thank you for creating this!
-An excellent way to review the learning for the students. Thanks
-What a clear and fun way to get information about the metric system. So much better than just taking plain notes.
