10 Best & Free Notion Templates For Students

Effective mind mapping is a great way to brainstorm, summarize lectures, and gather ideas. Mind maps are also helpful for studying because they help students grasp the material being studied in different ways. Making your own Notion templates can be time-consuming, but if you know where to look, you’ll find templates for free to print or download. Here are 10 of the best free Notion templates you can use to get started on your next project.

1) Grade Calculator this Notion template is a great way to organize your thoughts related to your grade. Make a new branch for each class, and make sub-branches with tasks you need to complete in order to get an A in the class, B, C, etc. Then color code based on different point values of assignments and tests. You could also use this for creating task lists, or grouping ideas by class.

2) Decision-Maker A decision can be tough to make sometimes, but it’s important to come to a solution you’re comfortable with. This Notion template gives color-coded branches for the pros and cons of different options, and also includes a notes branch with space to make any additional points you might need.

3) Campus Life Organizer This Notion template is the perfect way to organize upcoming events, assignments, and your schedule for a busy week. You can use each color as different types of events (i.e. socials, sports) or even as different time periods throughout the day (i.e. morning, afternoon).

4) Spaced Repetition System This template will help you to create a Spaced Repetition System (SRS), which is basically a personalized flashcard program. You’ll start by adding cards and note branches for the words you want to memorize. Then, using Notion’s drag-and-drop functionality and pre-made icons, connect each word branch with whatever image represents that word to you. This helps improve memory by making connections between the words and images, so a simple picture of a bed might remind you of the Spanish word for “bed,” which is “cama.”
