Concept Maps

Concept maps help students see the connections between words and ideas. Ask students to read a short science passage. When they finish, ask them for one big idea from the passage. Use this idea to begin a concept map on a board or flipchart, by putting the idea into a circle or box. Use lines to show the relationships between the ideas or concepts in the boxes or circles in the map. With practice, students can create their own concept maps for science ideas.
