Big Fat Notebook: Study Guides for Middle School
Do the genius creators of Brain Quest at Workman Publishing have middle school kids? I think so.
Because they’ve created five Big Fat Notebook study guides, each about major subject taught in middle school: Math, Science, American History, English Language Arts, and World History.
What a great resource!
Look at the layout inside one of these books. Talk about eye-catching and easy to navigate! Important info is highlighted in neon colors. Words and concepts are explained and defined. Tricky concepts are captured with fun doodles. Fun mnemonics help to remember information. Quizzes help solidify the concepts.
Of course, Big Fat Notebooks meet Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and state history standards. They’ve also been vetted by National and State Teacher of the Year Award–winning teachers.
