Circulatory System Foldables

This year I have changed up my biology classes.  For the past several (10-ish) years I have had a very strict Interactive notebook for freshmen with left and right sides and everything was very uniform.  This year (a few weeks into the year) I switched gears and I started making Foldables or sketch Notes/Doodle Notes and even giving the kids print outs of the notes and letting them make their own.  And I love it.  It is a lot of work, but it is a nice change of pace for me and the kids.

So here are a few pictures of the circulatory system.  Be on the lookout for more systems coming soon!

First up te Functions and Components of Blood.

Next is the Arteries, Capillaries, and Veins.


Then the ABO Blood Groups.  I use this one for all of my classes (Biology, AP Biology and Forensics).

 And lastly is the Heart

This year was an experiment as to how much information to provide and how much info they should be adding.  It is a delicate balance.  This set took more than a day to do, which I am not loving.  


  1. being in control is deifinitely not a bad trait. i am sure it comes useful in many aspects of life and i am sure sooner or later they are going to notice too
