Help your students understand the complicated reactions of photosynthesis with these fun illustrated Doodle Notes!

These note sheets review the light-dependent reaction and light-independent reaction/Calvin Cycle. Clear diagrams help students to visualize each stage in the reactions and an overview of how they are linked. There are multiple versions of the Doodle Notes for easy differentiation. Use the scaffolded fill-in-the-blanks version to support students or the open response version to increase challenge. Assign the color versions for digital learning with a PDF editor like Kami or print them for high engagement.

All of the diagrams are created by me, to ensure the level of information is suitable for High School and Advanced Biology courses.

My Doodle Notes are zero prep – just print and go! There is a completed example to model the Doodle Notes for your students or let them check their answers.
