Interactive Notes Activities

Students love to take notes, right?! Riiigghhhtt! Hehe 

I found a fun, creative and interactive way to get 
students to take notes! 

I wanted to make sure my notes stood out against others - there are many other ways to take notes and I value all of those ways. But when teaching, I was struggling to find that one set up that I felt would work for my students. I wanted areas hidden, yet areas that could be seen too. I wanted something that could fit in Interactive Notebooks, if needed, and not crazy big that they wouldn't fit nicely in a students folder. I created a line of Interactive Notes Activities! 

Add a bright card stock for the front page and it stands out in the messy folder, crazy locker and/or their desk! Use white card stock for the rest of the pages and you have created a quality notes resource for students to use and use again. I break the notes down with vocabulary words, simplistic and detailed definitions and an examples page. 

They are layered notes, which can be interchangeable to fit the needs of your students. If you only want to focus
