Graphic Organizers

As teachers, we all love graphic organizers because they can help students gain a clearer understanding of material using a visual. They can be used for anything from brainstorming to presenting information, for whole class instruction, individually, or within a group. They are also relatively easy to recreate in digital format.

There are apps out there such as Popplet on the iPad where students can create their own graphic organizers, or Lucidchart in the Chrome Web store for teachers. I really love just using Google Docs and/or Google Drawing and then sharing with the students.  Here are some examples of what you can create.  Feel free to make copies and use these organizers as collaborative tools in your classroom.

There are also graphic organizers in the Google Templates Gallery that you can copy.  Make sure you are in the "Public" tab and search for "Graphic Organizers."

Have fun!
