Student Sketchnotes across Subject Areas

sketchnotess

Recently, I challenged the middle schoolers in my mulitmedia tech class to create iPad sketchnotes from textbooks in a variety of different subjects that they were covering in their other classes. They came up with an assortment of very creative sketchesnotes. Here are a few examples:

Social Studies:

hannah social studies

From a science chapter:

austin science

From novels:

austin catching fire

erica novel

From Bible class:

Alex Ruth SketchThis representation of the Plagues of Egypt is particularly effective and memorable!

cyan plagues

And some stories from their literature textbook:

hannah story monica story

It was great to see how sketchnotes could be used in a wide variety of subject areas!
