Students Making Mind Maps

Today I introduced Mind Mapping to our class. Mind mapping is a great way to display and organize ideas and research. We researched about Koalas (using information from National Geographic) today and students picked out the key ideas as well as the key words to write on our mind maps. We created the beginnings of a class Mind Map and students then worked on their own Mind Maps. Students will be using Mind Maps to help organize key ideas for their nonfiction writing.
