In our class, we have been working on a new kind of thinking map called a tree map. Tree maps can help us to organize our thinking about an idea into groups or categories. This week we have synthesized tree maps into our learning in fun and interactive ways.
We also used our team work skills to work together at our table to make a tree map about colors. Each table got a different colored marker, and had to brainstorm and take turns illustrating things that could be that color. Each table shared their section of the tree map with the group and we put it together into a large map of colors. We are really learning to work cooperatively and listen to each others ideas!
