1. Organizing Information

Sketch notes help students organize information in a clear and structured way. Challenging concepts are more easily understood when they are visually mapped out with simple graphics and explanations.

2. Improves Comprehension

Science sketch notes can help students understand complex topics by breaking them into manageable pieces with great visuals. Students can see how concepts fit together and examples in action.

3. Enhances Creativity

Middle school science students can add their own personality to their sketch notes. Adding different colors with markers or colored pencils helps students make the notes their own and engage with the concepts. Areas of the notes encourage students to explain what they have learned or provide a real-world example of the concept.

4. Supports Review and Studying

By reviewing their science sketch notes, students can reinforce their understanding of key concepts and prepare for tests and assessments.

5. Teacher Time Saver

In addition to being a helpful resource for students, science sketch notes can also be a time-saver for teachers. With low-prep activities, quizzes, and slideshows included in the notes, teachers can spend less time creating lesson plans and more time focusing on teaching.

6. Standards Aligned

Science sketch notes are aligned with the 6th grade NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards), which means they cover the topics and skills that students are expected to learn at this grade level. This makes them an excellent tool for teachers who want to ensure that they are meeting curriculum standards and preparing their students for future science courses.
