My group of second graders read a book from Reading A-Z called Whose Eggs Are These? It included a "web", but that is not an official thinking map. I wanted the students to create a tree map, so we used the web with pictures, filled in, and then cut it out. We then glued them into a tree map. Here was the original and the finished product.
Tomorrow, I get to go on a field trip with our third graders to Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest. This is one of my favorite places to go because it is constantly changing! I will take pictures and post tomorrow! I just so enjoy going outside since I don't get to anymore!
