Taking Notes





When you take notes, you are trying to take out just the important words and ideas you will need later. Here's a video about taking notes to get you started:

Things to remember:

  • When you start using a new source, get a new piece of paper for your notes
  •  
     
  • Write the category of information at the top of your piece of paper (examples: elephant diet, elephant adaptations, elephant behavior)
  •  
     
  • Make a citation for your source on your bibliography page. Check with the example citations in the back of your organizer to see how your citation should look (format).
