Whole to Part Map-finding parts of a whole object



Sequencing Map-sequencing the order of events (beginning, middle, end)



Did a flow map for apple pie last year!  Maybe we will actually make some applesauce at school... in a crockpot?



Cause and Effect Map-use to find the causes and effects of an effect.



Seeing Analgies-finding relationships between two items/objects using the key words-as/just like. You read the top word, then the relatin factor and finally you read the bottom word.
