Units of Capacity Doodle Notes
Converting between customary units of capacity "doodle notes" -
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.
- knowing when to multiply vs. divide for conversions

Reviews from other teachers:
-This resource made learning conversions an engaging experience for the whole class. As students were coloring I would ask questions regarding what was discussed already and students would color and shout out answers. So much fun!
-I love doodle notes! These worked well even for distance learning. The students were able to either print out a page, or draw directly in a notebook at home.
-These doodle notes replaced my old activity -- Mr. Gallon Man. This seemed more age appropriate for my 5th and 6th graders.
-Awesome visual to use when reviewing together. It was great to have on hand and to refer to.
-Useful with fourth graders
