I like the idea of giving students candy treats with cute notes for test days. This helps give them some energy power to do their test, and helps students with test taking anxiety. The positive notes starts the test day off on a good foot.
Instead of simply taking notes with definitions, or to practice outlining skills, "sketchnoting" is the practice of listening/reading, summarizing, and synthesizing information along with eye-catching images. I like this for our history.
I love this idea! Could do with other people and use the notebook with kid-friendly objectives for any subject. Grade SS Interactive Notebook-----tons of pictures worth lots of great ideas! WELL DONE Teach! [licensed for non-commercial use only]
